Located in Castilla La Mancha, this ancient Bodega is a great example of the old and the new. The Cerrón family has cultivated this land since 1895. Located in Fuentealama in Albacete, they make wines under the DO Jumilla as well as the appellation Tierra de la Castilla.
The focus on this property is definitely quality over quantity. With prime location at almost 2500 feet above sea level on soil with underlying clay, chalk and limestone, the vineyards are subjected to quite extreme temperatures.
History runs deep here and in fact all the labels on the bottles are derived from family portraits. While the past is evident in the art of winemaking here, the future is very well represented by Juan Jose Cerdan and Ilaria Martini. They represent the 4th generation of winemakers. While sustainable and responsible farming was always practiced, the winery got certified organic in 1995. Bodega Cerrón is the first Certified Organic winery in Spain. Therefore, no fertilizers, additives or synthetic chemicals are used in these vineyards.
All harvesting is done by hand and only native yeast is employed in the winemaking. Grapes are minimally handled in small basket lots and a mere 30 minutes separate the harvest from the cellar!
The products of this level of meticulousness shows in the quality of wines produced here. The 2010 Rabia was awarded 91 points by Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate.
