The winery is located in Villarroya de la Sierra, one of the highest areas of the DO made of Paleolithic materials, mainly quartzite and slate. In addition the soils have the right organic content, which provide sufficient nutrients to the plant with proper aeration. The climate offers little rain and large temperature fluctuations between day and night.The grapes for Filon come from old vines vineyards, 30-40 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level, around the north zone of Calatayud.Stainless steel fermented.

Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón S.A. se fundó en 1.999 con la asociación de tres Bodegas de la Denominación de Origen Calatayud y la participación del Gobierno de Aragón y cuatro entidades financieras: I.A.F. (Instituto Aragonés de Fomento), Ibercaja, CAI, Multicaja, Cajalón, Bodega San Isidro (Maluenda), Bodega San Fabián (Mara) y Bodega Virgen del Mar y de la Cuesta (Munébrega). Creada para desarrollar el cultivo, la elaboración y la comercialización de vinos de calidad embotellados, jóvenes y de crianza, de las tres Bodegas, los orígenes de nuestra historia se remontan a los años 60 cuando se constituyeron estas bodegas agrupando todo el viñedo de los términos municipales de: Abanto, Acered, Alarba, Belmonte, Bijuesca, Calatayud, Carenas, Castejón de Alarba, Castejón de las Armas, Cimballa, Clarés de Ribota, El Frasno, Fuentes de Jiloca, Ibdes, Maluenda, Mara, Monterde, Montón, Morata de Jiloca, Munébrega, Nuévalos, Olvés, Orera, Paracuellos de Jiloca, Ruesca, Sediles, Terrer, Valtorres, Velilla de Jiloca, La Vilueña, Villafeliche, Villalba de Perejiles y Villarrolla. Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón S.A. es fruto del carácter dinámico y emprendedor que la Denominación de Origen de Calatayud necesitaba para afianzarse en su mercado; es el motor de una nueva forma de entender la viticultura que no olvida el origen y la tradición de la que procedemos. Calidad, Profesionalidad y Futuro junto a “esas pequeñas cosas cotidianas de la vida” han sido el punto de partida para desarrollar una tradición vinícola de la que “aún quedan cosas por descubrir” y que queremos que esté “en boca de todos”.

A little bit of a harsh taste. Ok for the price, but not great.

Spanish Garnacha. Noise is slightly alcoholic with bright fruit. Good beginning with decent fruit and slight spice. Finish is slightly alcholic with a tangy aftertaste. With a 2010 vintage, this is still tasting young. However, for the price of $9 it is a good value, decent for daily drinking with dinner. Not sure its worth the 90 points Robert Parker gave it though.

Offers up notes of smoke, mineral and wild cherry that mingle with layers of ripe cherry fruit on the palate. Down right pleasurable.
