Juan Gil winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, in the north hillside De Cerezo which belongs to the property. This mountain, which is covered in trees, shelters the back of the installations, the rest is surrounded by vineyards. In this shady place, the cellar is protected from the heat of the area. The uneven land is also adapted to the needs in order to prevent damaging the good quality of the grapes. The installations are designed by the winery staff, trying to combine the most modern technologies with the traditional and familiar winemaking processes. They are provided with authomatic systems which can obtain all the information to have traceability of the whole bottling process -not only elaboration but also internal changes- from the vineyards to the customers. The processing capacity of the winery is three and a half million kg of grapes. All the buldings are air-conditioned. The aging cellar has a capacity of 3000 oak casks. The laboratory equipment is ready to carry out all the necessary quality controls to guarantee the consumers`health. Read less

I really enjoyed this wine. It was full bodied with dark flavors. But I had it a couple of nights ago, so I can't remember the details.

Perfectly drinkable Monastrell year after year despite the silly name. Plum and roasted berry aromas and flavors are sweet, ripe, clean and on the generic side of the fence. A little rugged and hot at 15%, but lusty and good for the price.

Juicy flavors of cherry, black grapes and plums shine in this fresh red, and the light tannins are firm enough to give it structure. Mourvèdre. Drink now.

Hmmmmm... you may be thinking that is one unique name, but it fits this unique red well. Chock full of bright, ripe raspberry and red fruit, with hints of peppercorn and black olives. Juicy and bright, this spicy little number will be your grill's best friend, as it is perfect for your favorite barbecued treats. So next time you are in Premier tell them "Wrongo Dongo" sent you.

This chewy red offers juicy cherry and plum flavors against a backdrop of game and chocolate notes. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated, the finish long and peppery. Drink now through 2007.

Inky ruby. Smoky blackberry and cherry aromas are complemented by notes of cracked pepper and dried flowers; smells like a syrah. Firm, focused dark fruit flavors gain sweetness with air and pick up slightly bitter tannins. The finish repeats the blackberry note, leaving a zesty, peppery quality behind. Lots of bang for the buck here.

The 2005 Wrongo Dongo (named after one of America's great wine personalities who made this expression infamous) is a beautifully tank-fermented and aged, full-bodied red offering abundant quantities of blue and black fruits, surprisingly silky tannin, and an up-front style. Some may call it internationally styled, but at $8, who's complaining?
