A partir de ese momento, se ponen en marcha diversos programas de I+D+i con el objeto de establecer los principios del manejo del viñedo ecológico con cubierta vegetal; la elaboración de vinos generosos ecológicos que expresen la identidad de la tierra y la variedad de la uva, en contraposición a los métodos de elaboración más industriales y estandarizados; el desarrollo de alimentos ecológicos a partir de nuestros vinos y vinagres.


The Robles family has been dedicated to the elaboration of wines in Montilla since 1927.

In the late 90s, the third generation of the family took over the reins of the winery and understands that, we are supporters of a return, rather than progress. The siblings Pilar and Francisco Robles understand the principles of their grandparents must be upheld and that, in order to attain those principles, must use the current available technology. Cultivating organic grapes with a higher intensity and quality of aromas and flavours that we know, overseeing its natural process and conveying all that wealth of the fruit in the wine.

Using in the vineyard a vegetation cover which includes short root and nitrogen-fixing indigenous wildlife species such as cloverleaf, poppies, legumes.

In the winery, the elaboration team led by the oenologist Rocío Márquez and the winery foreman Vicente Martínez Robles, pay special attention to the use of indigenous yeasts and physical processing of the wine. In this fashion, the fermentation of our wines is elaborated with indigenous yeasts which are present in the soil of the vineyard and reaches the winery attached to the skin of the grape. That is why the ecological care of our vineyard is so important: the yeasts are primarily responsible for the wine to express what it is, transforming the sugars in the grape must into alcohol. When one speaks about wines which manage to express an identity, the indigenous yeasts are regarded as almost a must do obligation. In other words: elaborating wines which express a purity, the faithful reflection of the soil and varietal character of the grape. Wines belonging to their soil. The contribution of Pilar Robles and Rocío Márquez to the winery, was recognised in 2014 with the Great Diamond Prize of the International Wine and Women Competition (Salón del Gourmet “Gourmet Show”, Madrid), a competition which attempts to place true value to wines produced by wineries where women hold management positions or positions of responsibility.
