The label on Viña San Juan bottles depicts the bonfires during the celebration of Noche de San Juan (the night of Saint John) at Toledo. Our Viña San Juan exhibits the maximum expression from three grape varieties: Merlot, Syrah and Tempranillo. The resulting coupage is a real pleasure to our senses: sight, smell and taste. This is a perfect wine to enjoy with a wide range of Spanish gastronomic concepts.

  • Region

    In the former kingdom of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain, we can find the largest vine-growing area in the world with an endless expanse of 300,000 hectares of vineyard. It is also the stomping ground of Miguel de Cervantes’s famous novel, Don Quixote. The huge area covered by this Denominación de Origen borders Valencia and Murcia to the East, and Extremadura to the West, Andalusia to the South and Madrid to the North-West. Wine making began here in Roman times and was widespread during the middle ages. The versatility of this land has allowed for the introduction of a wide variety of international varieties of grape.

    The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked, fermented at a controlled temperature (23-25ºC) to ensure the optimum aromatic potential in order to preserve the original aromas and flavours.
