Vineyards & Viticulture

Bodegas Los Frailes Estate occupies over 130 hectares of terrain located in the valley ‘Els Alforins’. Our main grape variety is the Monastrell, a variety traditionally planted in ‘Els Alforins’ region, which was partially lost during the last century as a consequence of the growth of more popular varieties (e.g Cabernet Sauvignon). Our main goal is the reintroduction of the Monastrell combined with the incorporation of new varieties( Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Maselan, Shiraz, Garnacha) to raise the unique personality of our wines.

60% of the estate is planted with Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and the other 20% compounded by Tempranillo, Marselan, Shiraz, Garnacha. We have a wide variety of soils spread out on hillsides, ranging in altitude from a maximum 800 meters down to the bottom of the valley. The average age of the vineyards is over 25 years old, including vineyards of Monastrell variety with more than 40 years old.
