The Winery & Winemaker

AltoLandon

Original post from @altolandonbodega Instagram

Rosalía Molina & Mano Garrote planted their first vines in 1999. They set up the winery the following year and launched their first wine. Their vineyards, among the highest in Spain (1,050m), are located in a plateau surrounded by mountains in the village of Landete in Cuenca (Central Spain). All of them carry the DO Manchuela label.

Rosalía runs the winery mainly and continues to dedicate her life to her passion for winemaking

Altitude was the key factor in the choice of grape varieties. Thanks to the late ripening conditions provided by location, the wines are distinctively aromatic and fresh.
