With 970 has of undulating land, our vineyards are located in the region of Madrid on the border with Castilla La Mancha.

The Valquejigoso Domaine is part of the heritage of Félix Colomo Díaz, the great bullfighter from Madrid, born in 1913 and founder of the famous Las Cuevas de Luis Candelas restaurant and its two sister restaurants, Posada de la Villa and La Taberna del Capitán Alatriste.  Today, the founder’s son, Félix, and his family own and run the winery and restaurants, the most renowned in Madrid situated in its historical quarter.

The terroir of the estate, with its continental mesoclimate, its soft rolling hills and variability of soil composition (granite, sand and clay), coupled with the diversity of our grape varieties, allow us to craft wines with a distinctive character and complexity.

Situated at higher altitudes of up to 610m, temperatures here are cooler than in its neighbouring terroir, with higher diurnal ranges combined with extreme temperatures and low rainfall, leading to optimum ripeness but with greater elegance in our wines.

We have plantings of 9 red varieties namely, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Negral, and 4 white varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Albillo Real and Moscatel.

We have plantings of 9 red varieties namely, After cooling the grapes, they undergo a strict selection process, both at bunch and berry levels before we place them in small-capacity, cone-shaped tanks by gravity and into French oak vats. We differentiate the production of each of our 69 vineyard plots in order to vinify separately each grape variety coming from our vineyards and we later blend a selection of these according to our winemaker’s impeccable craftsmanship.

We age our wines in French oak vats and barrels, always bearing in mind the desired impact of the oakageing with the aim of keeping the fruit character of the wines.

Our V1 is the jewel of our range, produced only in exceptional vintages, this wine is made with mastery, passion and an utmost care, its objective is to have serious ageing potential.

In 2006, our V2 2008 was voted by The Wine Enthusiast among the Top 100 Wines of the World.
