An 18th century monastery houses Bodegas Iglesias, where wine has been made ever since. One of the rooms (with vaulted ceilings) was used for the maturation of oloroso wines, the mass wine. The Iglesias family has been at the foundation of this bodega for more than 3 generations. The same standards, values and love for wine are still central here. In recent years, however, the modernization of the bodega, the packaging and the winemaking process has been rigorously tackled.
After a restoration, the bodega expanded the space to a capacity of more than one million liters. Of course, this restoration and extension was done with respect for the historical values of the ancient monastery. Important parts of this are preserved and cherished, such as the granary that now serves as a sacristy. In recent years, the doors have also been opened to receive the many interested parties, who not only want to taste, but also want to get to know and understand the culture and history behind these wines. They mainly make fortified wines with Zalema as the main grape.
