Dominio del Águila is a winery founded by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero in 2010. Jorge started his oenology studies in Bordeaux and continued his professional career in emblematic cellars such as Romanée-Conti and Vega Sicilia before ending up in the cellars of Arzuaga.
They cultivate 30 hectares of ecological vineyards and Tempranillo is the main variety cultivated with others such as Bobal, Garnacha and Albillo on sandy-clayey-rocky soil depending on the plot.
