* The Bodegas Grupo Yllera were founded in 1970 in Rueda and little by little they grew to be present in some of the most reputable Spanish appellations of origin. His first great wine was Cantosan, a pioneering white wine at the time, made with the Verdejo variety in the DO Rueda, from whose governing board the Yllera family was a founding member.
In the spring of the year 83 the Tinto Yllera would arrive, a red wine different from those made in Castilla y León at that time. Jesús and Pepe Yllera, fifth generation of winemakers, selected the best grapes from the Duero basin to make a wine that they would then raise in barrels for a year; The commercial success of the new product was hoarding.Since those beginnings, now far away, the Yllera group has expanded and its catalog of wines has not stopped growing. At present, in addition to the white wines of the DO Rueda, they produce Wines of the Land of Castilla y León, Ribera del Duero (Bracamonte, Pepe Yllera), Toro (Garcilaso) and Rioja (Coelus). Although, of all the wines, perhaps the most successful commercial was the Yllera 5.5 Frizzante, a light and fruity needle wine that made everyone fall in love since its first bottles and which today is already among the essentials of many Spanish tables.
It does not seem that the restlessness of the Yllera group has an end. Proof of this is that Montxo Martínez, chief winemaker, and his team are still investigating new winemaking techniques and working with new varieties such as muscat, shiraz, chardonnay or national touriga, which will undoubtedly soon be new and amazing wines.
