A family winery with headquarters in La Aguilera, a small town in the Ribera del Duero, and run by a couple formed by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero, "vigneron" and architect respectively. Since 2010 they have joined forces to make a dream come true; to elaborate unique wines ...
The winery belongs to the "Denomination of Origin Ribera del Duero" and is located in the "Ecological Council of Castilla y León."
They have rehabilitated little by little a traditional winery of the XVII century and six underground cellars / galleries of the century XV, which have been connected and where concrete deposits and oak cubes are found.
In Dominio del Águila really strive to do everything in an artisanal way, being very respectful with nature and making a symbiosis between tradition and knowledge.
The main asset of Dominio del Águila is its vineyard: it has 30 hectares of very old vines, most of them in organic agriculture, in addition to 5 relatively young hectares (under 50 years old). They are suppliers of grapes from some of the main wineries in the region for more than 10 years.
Our passion is the vineyard!
Throughout all those years of learning and acquiring experience, they have also dedicated themselves to the recovery of the vineyards of the family, until they bring together an important vineyard heritage of very high quality, true Grand Crus ... where the tempranillo grape is the true protagonist, coexisting in a very friendly way with other varieties such as white of the country, bobal, grenache, albillo, gray tempranillo, etc.
Jorge comes from a family of several generations of winemakers and his studies were based on 'Soil, viticulture and enology' at the Universities of Bordeaux and Burgundy. He has worked with prestigious wineries such as Domaine De La Romanée-Conti for more than two years. He has also worked in Spain in Vega Sicilia for one year and as technical director of Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro for nine campaigns. Since 2013 he has been working full time in Dominio del Águila.
The final goal of Dominio del Águila is to make pure and fine wines. Organic wines that are capable of aging for a long, long time, but which, however, can be enjoyed at any time.
All of them are made without destemming and trod in the winepress as in the past. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in oak barrels of the highest quality and aging in the underground galleries. Currently there are about 250 oak cubes.
