Alvear

-

Alvear is one of the top-three bodegas in the Montilla-Moriles region. It’s the oldest winery in the region, and they produce some of the most excellent wines. Their history goes back to 1729. The Alvear family moved in from Cantabria up north and settled in Córdoba. A few years later they arrived in the town of Montilla, where Diego de Alvear y Escalera founded the bodega, now managed by the eighth generation. Alvear owns around 300 hectares of vines. They have premises in the center of the town (offices + sweet PX production) as well as in the Sierra de Montilla, closer to the vineyards (dry wine production).

single harvest wines

--

The company still uses tinajas (earthenware vessels) though mainly as storage and sometimes for part of the maturation. Fermentation is today done in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The export is around 40% of Alvear’s annual production to more than 25 countries around the world. Like the other wineries in the area, they are renowned for their sweet PX wines, for which they’ve earned a lot of awards, but their dry wines are perhaps even more interesting. Since 1998 Alvear is producing vintage wines (sweet PX but also dry Finos). By doing so, they were one of the first bodegas to (re-)introduce single harvest wines, before the bodegas in Jerez.
