Bodegas Luzón

Jumilla, Spain

Bodegas Luzón was founded in the Jumilla region of southeast Spain in 1916. In 2005 the 275 hectare estate was bought by the Fuertes family, who have invested heavily to modernise the grape growing and winemaking practices.

The climate in Jumilla is Continental with severe summers and winter and low levels of rainfall. The extreme heat of the summer is moderated by a slight cooling influence from the Mediterranean Sea, helping to retain freshness in the wines. Bodegas Luzón's vineyards are certified sustainable and they have converted some of the estate to organic practices. In this hot climate, the estate specialises in growing heat-loving black-skinned grape varieties, particularly Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Head Winemaker, Vicente Mico produces a range of full-bodied and rich wines in the modern winery, using stainless steel and carefully selected French and American oak barrels.
