Félix Callejo is a family-owned winery located in the Ribera del Duero region of Spain. The winery was founded in 1989 by Félix Callejo, who had inherited several vineyards from his father. Today, the winery is run by Félix's sons, who continue to maintain the family's traditions of winemaking.
The vineyards of Félix Callejo are located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, where the grapes are grown on slopes with a southern exposure and soils that are rich in clay and limestone. The winery cultivates a variety of grape varietals, including Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.
The winery produces a range of wines, including their flagship wine, the Félix Callejo Crianza. This wine is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes and is aged in French oak barrels for 14 months. The wine is known for its intense aromas of red and black fruit, vanilla, and spices, as well as its well-structured and balanced palate.
In addition to their Crianza, Félix Callejo also produces a range of other wines, including their Reserva, made from a selection of the best grapes from their vineyards, and their Gran Reserva, which is only made in exceptional vintages. The winery also produces a white wine, the Félix Callejo Blanco, made from Verdejo grapes.
Félix Callejo is committed to sustainable and organic winemaking practices, and they have implemented a number of initiatives to reduce their environmental impact. The winery is also focused on producing wines that showcase the unique terroir of the Ribera del Duero and express the character of the grapes grown in their vineyards.
