The family

Since 1771, Bodegas Los Frailes has belonged to the family Velazquez without any interruption. The winery was formerly a property of the Jesuits friars who were expelled from Spain in the Confiscation of 1767 by King Carlos III of Spain. Four years later a written manuscript reveals that our ancestors acquired in public auction the house, lands and cellar known as “ Casa Los Frailes”- Friar house.

Keeping our roots, we are committed to produce wines that reflect the character of our terroir. In 1999 Bodegas Los Frailes undertook an ambitious project. First, a reorganisation of the vineyards bringing the utmost of our indigenous variety, Monastrell (with vineyards of more than 40 years old). Second, returning to the traditional agriculture, we reconverted the whole production to organic farming methods. And third, we carried out an important modernization of the old cellar and the construction of 3 new ones including a bottling plant.

The result is a range of exceptional wines with very unique personalities and great quality.
