About us

Company details

Welcome to our home, Bodegas Los Frailes, a long tradition family business since 1771. Located in Valencia province, 80 Km from the Mediterranean Sea and at 700 meters above sea enjoys a unique climate.

Our philosophy is to produce wines that reflect the character of our terroir, developing our autochthonous Monastrell grape variety, which is the essence of our wines. As a consequence, we returned to our ancestor’s traditional agriculture methods reconverting our whole production into Organic farming.

The result is a range of exceptional wines, national and international awarded, with very unique personalities and great quality.

We will be very pleased if you can come and visit us our 130-hectare estate. You can enjoy our historical house, our old and new installations and the charms of the Valley.
