Pre-phylloxeric family winery
The family of vintners of La Bodega de las Estrellas has already reached five generations. A vocation that begins in the mid-nineteenth century when the vineyard expands in the central region of Castilla, as a result of the strong commercial development due to the arrival of phylloxera to Europe that is killing the vineyards; while here it comes later and is not so devastating, since the soils of this region, of a permeable nature created a resistance to the plague and unlike the rest of spanish and european territories, replanting was not widespread.
Rewards and history
Silver Medal (1929)
The achievements of the first generations were rewarded with the Silver Medal in white and red wines of the 1928 harvest, in the National Wine Competition of International Exhibition of Barcelona (1929).
Gold Medal (2003)
In 1996 the fifth family generation with Dionisio and Karina at the helm, take over the winery and in the face of the productivist and denaturing trend in the sector, chooses to evolve in the search for authenticity and true quality, which is consolidated with the Gold Medal, in the International Competition of Organic Wines Biofach 2003 and the beautiful but difficult path of the independent vintner with organic cultivation of the vineyards and natural elaboration of wines.
Having maintained and used the heritage of family elaboration, makes possible today a differentiation in the wines, since being faithful to the tradition, makes us original, since the rest of the wineries have derived to technological models and "creative" oenology.
