Producers Profiles
Cillar de Silos

Up in the hills north of Aranda del Duero, in the town of Quintana del Pidio, the Aragon family have a couple of truly special patches of very gnarled old tempranillo vines, 60+ and 80+ years’ age. Here the soil is slightly heavier and more mineral than the sandy valley floor, though heavy clay is avoided.
Cillar de Silos is an archetypal modern estate: family-owned, fruit redeemed from the co-op mode of production is now lovingly cared for. They use low cropping, organic, best practice farming and sensitively handled in the purpose-built winery on the property. Then the wine is aged in a centuries old “cellar of silos” originally carved into the hill at Quintana by the Romans.
