The idea arose in 2000 from the passion that some friends had for wine. They became partners in order to make a dream come true: plant vineyards at the heart of the Ribera del Duero, create a state-of-the-art winery and produce high quality wines.
Bertrand Erhard, a French winemaker who perfectly understood the philosophy of the project, joined the group.
In 2002, 27 hectares of vineyards were planted in five different estates. The idea was to make a wine from the land from start to finish. The vineyards were planted while the Winery was being built.
In 2012, Bodegas Hacienda Monasterio became a shareholder of Montecastro, taking on the technical, wine-making and sales management.
In 2015, the first vintage created by the Hacienda Monasterio team, Montecastro Vintage 2012, was placed on the market.
