In the property was a winerybuilt in 1870 by the French when phylloxera forced them out of their vineyards in France (Jumilla is one of the few places in Spain thatsuccessfully resisted the infestation of phylloxera, hence making it an ideal place for this new winery). In 1985, the second generation of thefamily (Mr. Nemesio and his son Jose M Vicente) revived the property with the reconstruction of the vineyard and with the introduction of newvarieties. In 1991 the wine cellar was reformed to preserve its origin

Casa Castillo Monastrell 2005 and all other wine from Casa Castillo are available for immediate delivery and discounted prices from CheaperCigars.com. We also carry wide variety of wine from Spain and across the globe.
A great value, the 2002 Casa Castillo is a blend of 85% Monastrell and 15% Syrah aged completely in French and American oak for four months before bottling. It offers loads of blue and blackberry fruit, a hint of licorice, medium body, and fine purity as well as density. This mouthfilling red should be consumed over the next 2ndash;3 years.
This dense, dark-toned red offers plum, coffee and sanguine flavors with muscular tannins and an earthy finish. Try with hearty stews. Best from 2005 through 2009.
