The winery is located in the center of a small town in the north of the province of Toledo, La Torre de Esteban Hambrán and is located in a former palace built in the sixteenth century belonging to the Alonso Cuesta family.

The vineyards are located in the municipality of Camarena, 600m above sea level and with sandy loam. The main grape varieties are planted, as for instance: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo, Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc.

Garnacha is the queen variety of our PDO, with more than 60 years of history.
Harvesting is done manually in the early hours of the morning and in small boxes of 20kg, so that the fruit arrives fresh and whole to the winery where the grapes are selected for further processing.

In Alonso Cuesta Wineries, we wanted to unite tradition and innovation when developing our wines, so the processing is done in "Ganymede" stainless steel tanks technology in order to get the best of our grapes, always seeking balance and elegance in our wines.
Aging takes place in the basement of the old palace, with a constant temperature and humidity throughout the year, without resorting to artificial elements to maintain that temperature and humidity. The new barrels are:
They are made of Allier French Oak and American Oak with a capacity of 225 liters.
