Winemaker Notes
We began to elaborate Félix Callejo in 2002. We were observing in the tasting of grapes that we made prior to the harvest, the nuances so different that we noticed in the limestone soils. Finally, we decided that year, to select some Tinto Fino from the limy chalks of several vineyards to more than 900 m. of altitude and ferment separately. The result was spectacular! Enthusiastic with the finesse and elegance that the limestone soils provide to the Tinto Fino, year after year we witness the evolution of these magnificent soils”

Tasting Notes
It has a cherry red color with garnet rim. Intense nose, aromas of ripe fruit, blueberry, spicy, rosemary, clove, balsamic, ink, creamy oak. The mid-palate is powerful and tasty, fruity sensations appear and aromatic nose, plus chocolate, ripe tannins, and a long and persistent end.

The Technical Part
Our vineyard is located in the village of Sotillo de la Ribera, on the northern edge of the Duero River Valley. We have 60 ha. divided into 25 plots distributed in a profile that goes from 830 m. in the lower parts up to 930 m. in the highest. This situation within Ribera del Duero, offers us soils of different geological origin.

Bodegas Felix Callejo is a family winery founded in 1989 by Félix Callejo. It's the second generation, Cristina, José Félix, Beatriz and Noelia Callejo who continue this exciting legacy. The experiences in other wineries of both José Félix (Petrus - France, 1999; Torres - Chile, 2000) and Noelia (Araujo - Napa, 2007 and 2010; Cobos - Mendoza, 2008) provided the basis for further developing a philosophy dump on the soil and to be Vignerons.
In the year 2000, they began to work in an ecological way in their vineyards, a clean, respectful viticulture, full of life for the soils and therefore for their wines.
This step, made them and makes them return to the past to be able to look to the future. Observe their surroundings, the landscape that surrounds them, the culture that they have acquired thanks to their ancestors always linked to the world of wine and the authenticity of the land.
