 Wine: Prefer a slightly lighter red wine with a delicate, smooth finish? Then this vino ticks the box. 1771 Casa Los Frailes is an exceptional wine from one of our favourite Spanish wineries. It is the elite wine of the winery and is made with the oldest Monastrell vines (75 years-old).  An elegant, complex delight. ¡Delicioso!

Some neat trivia for you... 1771 Casa Los Frailes is named after the year in which the winery’s ancestors purchased the estate from King Charles III of Spain.  Even the label is a replica of the contract drawn up to purchase the land centuries ago!

 About Winery: From the moment we stepped foot onto Casa Los Frailes, we immediately fell in love with the winery.  It's a pure gem!  Located in the Valencia DO, the artisanal family owned winery takes its name from the Jesuit Friars (Frailes in Spanish) who occupied the Estate from the 16th to 18th century.  The winery’s ancestors purchased the estate in a public auction in 1771. The property has remained within the same family for the last 250 years!

 Casa Los Frailes is committed to preserving the land as well as honouring the history and traditions of the estate.  The winery was certified organic in 2002 and currently follows biodynamic farming practices.  Paying homage to their ancestors, a range of their wines are even aged in the Friar’s ancient concrete deposits from centuries ago.  ¡Qué fuerte! (How cool is that!)
