At 800 metres above sea level, sheltered by the Sierra del Negrete mountains (Utiel) and set amongst hills that once sat at the bottom of the Mediterranean, a unique landscape comes into view.
A landscape in which groves of pine, oak and olive are united by the aromas of the rosemary, fennel and thyme that cloak the valley and which in turn tinge the fruit of the Sarrión-Martínez family’s vineyards, the Bobal.
A durable grape that endures extreme climates and poor soils, the Bobal is cultivated by means of natural processes that are pioneering in the region, producing a highly nuanced fruit, at once elegant and delicate.
It is also a pure expression of its surroundings: the soils, climate, mountain aromas and vicinty to the sea together endow the wine with its rare Mediterranean character.
A 100 YEARS OF HISTORY
In 2019 we celebrate a 100 years since the first recorded Terrerazo wine. The wine, Terrerazo 1919, was recorded by the erudite agricultural engineer and oenologist D. Rafael Janini y Janini, and produced by the very same estate that now forms part of Bodega Mustiguillo.
Together with other bodegas and estates from the Requena-Utiel region, this long-standing family-run estate of more than 45 years today plays a huge part in Bodega Mustiguillo’s vision of producing premium regional wines. A project which has developed into a wide range of sustainable wines and innovative viticulture and winemaking. A project which has origins in our very own vineyards and is led by Toni Sarrión, an name which is synonomous with Spanish viticulture.
