Winemaker Notes
This paraje (place) is located at the edge of the Sotillo páramo, at 930 m. of altitude, it is our highest vineyard. In the 80's our father destined this place to a landing strip of small planes, given the height and plain of the land. A controversial idea for the time. The soils of the páramos de Sotillo are limestone soils. The parent rock, at the edges of the páramos, is very close to the surface, with the presence of loose stone that favors drainage and aeration. It is an isolated vineyard, the only one around, like our father with his landing strip, we became adventurers in 2004, the result is a unique blend of Tinto Fino, and Merlot.”

Tasting Notes
Lively, deep, dense red colour that tints the glass and the tears running down its sides. Deep, delicate aromas of wild forest flowers and the fresh breezes of the high plains mingle harmoniously with ripe tropical fruit characters. Mineral touches reminiscent of underground limestone rock come through against a backdrop of spicy and smoky notes. Hints of just-picked grapes appear on the palate along with fresh tannins that are yet to become fine and polished. Mouth-filling on the palate with a fine-grained texture; the full ripeness of the grapes shows through, followed by a long, lingering finish.

The Technical Part
The 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. The ecological management, respecting each soil, allows us to create wines with soul, authentic and full of the expression of each land.

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.
