I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Bodegas Alvear

It has been 275 years since Don Diego de Alvear y Escalera, began in 1729 the production in the town of Montilla, region of Andalusia, Spain, the very first wines of Alvear. Since then, Alvear has continued to progress and develop in a harmonious manner. Eight generations of the family have over time made their contribution both in terms of technical modernization of the cellar and in the conservation of its architectural heritage. Culture, tradition, taste and vanguard go hand in hand to conserve the Pedro Ximenez grape, the queen of DO Montilla-Moriles. A historic bodega of acknowledged prestige for nearly three centuries and which today still remains on top.
