Dominio del Águila is a family winery based in La Aguilera, a small village in RIBERA DEL DUERO, and run by a couple formed by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero, vigneron and architect respectively. Since 2010 we have joined our efforts to make a dream come true
The winery is within the Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero and within the Consejo Ecologico de Castilla y León, the institution that regulates ORGANIC WINES.
The domain's greatest asset is the vineyard. we count with 30 hectares of very old vines, mostly in organic farming, apart from 5 additional hectares relatively young (under 50 years). We are grapes suppliers of some of the main wineries in the region since more than 10 vintages.
Our passion is the vineyard! Jorge comes from a family of many generations of vignerons. His studies were based in Soil, viticulture and oenology at the Universities of Bordeaux and Burgundy. He worked with prestigious wineries such as Domaine De La Romanée-Conti for more than two years. He has also worked in Spain in the Vega Sicilia Group for a year and as technical director of Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro for nine years. Since 2013 he works full time in Dominio del Águila.
