The Juan Gil Winery, founded in 1916 by Juan Gil Jiménez, has been run by a clear idea for generations: To do a good job and be proud of the name Juan Gil.
Juan Gil Guerrero, son of the founder, and subsequently his grandson, Juan Gil González, improved and consolidated the status of the winery, carrying on the knowledge of the traditions passed on from parents to children. Today, Juan Gil is the fourth generation of his family to combine tradition with the achievements of the technological revolution.
Juan Gil - a special style
Jumilla - the Juan Gil winery is located in this place with extreme climate and strong contrasts. With hot summers characterized by intense sunshine and long, cold winters, a difference of 25ºC between day and night and the almost complete absence of rainfall, the climate in Jumilla demands a lot from the vines. In addition, the soil is very dry and stony. It is these characteristics that give Juan Gil wines their character - it is the style of Jumilla.
Juan Gil - in the Monastrell Kingdom
Juan Gil's vineyards are located between 700 and 850 meters altitude, on sandy and calcareous soils, stony on the surface and very poor in nutrients. It is the Kingdom of Monastrell, which is represented in the vast majority of Juan Gil wines.
Besides old vines over 40 years old and other younger Monastrell vines, Juan Gil also grows
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- und Petit Verdot
which adapt well to the terroir and deliver intense nuances of spices and fruits.
A new age for Juan Gil
Since the construction of the new winery, many things have changed for Juan Gil. The demands on modern wines of our time require not only craftsmanship but also a lot of technology: strict temperature control of the must, stainless steel tanks and excellent hygienic conditions during the entire vinification process ensure maximum quality at Juan Gil every year.
But wine is not only "made" in the cellar, but first and foremost in the vineyard. For this reason, the location of the vineyards next to the cellar allows for comprehensive monitoring of the development of the grapes, which is necessary for an excellent wine. It is a new era, with new wines and a blend of old vines and new techniques, that Juan Gil is embarking on.
