Vineyards and wineries Asensio Carcelén, N.C.R., started its journey as a winery thanks to D. Asensio Carcelén Herrero in the late period of the nineteenth century, experimented a great industrial and economic boom due to his successor, D. Juan Carcelén Herrero, who started to introduce bottling in the wines he elaborated. After his retirement, his son D. Asensio Carcelén Cutillas took over control of the winery and focused his work on exportation, transforming the winery Asensio Carcelén into one of the best companies of the sector.
The main activity of Asensio Carcelén winery has always been the production of Jumilla D.O. wines in all its forms, but mainly bottled ones, and its national and international commercialisation.
Its annual production is estimated to be around 500.000 Kg of grapes within its 300Ha of own vineyards, dry land cultivated, traditional globet pruned, and integrated in organic agriculture. The main variety used is Monastrell with a 90% of production, followed by Syrah and Garnacha Tinta with a 5% of production each one.
Since 2006, in order to improve its industrial activity, the winery was located next to its own vineyard, adapting to the times, to new technology and implanting new winemaking processes, quality controls and environmental adequacy. At the end of 2011 the winery obtained all the certification needed to start to produce organic wine.
Our future is guaranteed by a family member, D. Juan Carcelén Gilar, Technical Agricultural Engineer and Graduated in Enology who works passionately in order to continue the tradition of winemaking, adapting it to the new times.
