Since 1916, when Juan Gil Giménez had the winery built, only one clear idea has moved the following generations in charge of the same:
Doing a good job and being prideful of the Juan Gil name and commercial trademark.
Juan Gil Guerrero, a founder’s son, firstly, and then his grandson Juan Gil González, improved and consolidated the winery, applied the traditional knowledge of their job transmitted from parents to children. Nowadays, the fourth generation, linking the tradition with the technical revolution, is the one that enjoys the result of the work done by the predecessors.
In this place, with extreme climate and strong contrast, is where our winery is located.
With hot summers of intense sun, long and cold winters, a difference of 25ºC between day and night, almost total absence of rainfall, and with a dry and stony ground. These land particularities are which gives us the character we have, which marks our people and, of course, our wines. It’s our way of doing things.
It’s the style of Jumilla
