Casa Los Frailes is named after the Jesuit Friar Order, who resided in the house from the 16th to the 18th century. They crafted wine using traditional methods, utilizing large clay amphoras and concrete tanks. The winery, which has been under continuous family ownership since 1771, now boasts a 162-acre organic/biodynamic estate with a distinctive terroir. Situated at a high altitude of 650-700 meters above sea level, the vineyards adhere to strict dry farming practices. With vines aged over 80 years, the estate's soil is notably calcareous, influenced by the nearby Mediterranean Sea. Through their commitment to honouring their origins and maintaining a deep reverence for nature, Los Frailes produces genuine and unadulterated wines that encapsulate a profound heritage and bond with the land the family has called home for centuries. 

Crafted entirely from Monastrell grapes using the same methods employed by the friars of old, this estate wine delivers abundant aromas of fruity blackberries and blueberry compote with brambly undertones. The palate is medium-weighted with approachable tannins, offering mouth-watering acidity and pleasing florals which compliment the bright fruit. This wine was kept away from wood and instead brought up in concrete vats in order to highlight the authentic character of Monastrell. The experience concludes with a vibrant burst of juiciness, leaving behind lingering impressions of purple flowers.

Although this style is amiable enough to sip and enjoy on its own, it's a knock out alongside braised beef short ribs with roasted or grilled veggies. 

About the Winery

Casa Los Frailes

Casa Los Frailes is located in the valley called “land of Alforins”, south west inland province of Valencia, with average altitude of 650-700 meters above sea level. The valley is located between two mountains range, on the east the Mediterranean Sea (50km) and on the west the main “plateau” of La Mancha. Casa Los Frailes (“Cals Frares” in old valencian local language) takes their name from the Jesuit Friars that used to live in the Estate over two centuries (XVII to XVIII). The Casa Los Frailes estate now belongs to the Velázquez family and has for over 250 years, today the 13th generation runs the winery.

Frontrunners in organic agriculture and biodynamics, the estate consists of 162 hectare with vineyards, Mediterranean forest, almond and olive trees and a unique terroir. The main variety was (and still is) the Monastrell, cultivated in bush vines. "As inheritors of such legacy, we believe our wines should be part and transmit the history of our estate, as this history is obviously unique. In today's interconnected world, wines are more and more uniform, but we are committed to elaborate authentic and different wines, loyal to our personality and our history."

Quite a fruity and floral nose with lots of violets and lavender to the slightly jammy mulberries, sweet purple potatoes and ripe, crushed blueberries. A peppery whiff to the purple flowers and fruit on the medium- to full-bodied palate with firm tannins and a fruity finish. Unadorned, with lovely dryness at the end. From organically grown grapes. No sulfites added.
