Wine: Years ago when we first were introduced to Los Frailes, this wine immediately won us over. It's such a contrast to the 100% Tempranillo oak wines which were dominant in Spain at the time.
Whether pairing with steak, cold meats or cheese (or perhaps just grabbing a cheeky glass of wine!) Trilogía is sure to be an instant success due to its freshness, structure and finesse. Trilogia is a blend of 3 grapes with very different personalities: the Monastrell, the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Tempranillo. The end result is a well rounded, complex, and quality wine. Great to drink now or can be stored in the wine fridge for years to come.
About Winery: From the moment we stepped foot onto Casa Los Frailes it was love at first sight. 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!)
