Located in the village of Aguilar of the Frontera at 50 km from Córdoba, this area was founded in 1844 by Antonio Sánchez Prieto.Domaine
In 1922, José Toro Albalá, passionate about both the wine and archaeology, restores and moving the field in the former powerhouse of Aguilar, vast warehouses underground, ideal for the conservation of the wine. Some popular jokes such as "How many volts does this wine?" still remain in the region. Today is Antonio Sanchez Romero who strives to create unique, handmade, jewelry without losing the essence of his field, Pedro Ximenez, extraordinary native grape. It's a great oenologist with encyclopedic knowledge, and always inventive and lively personality. The area has revived the reputation of the wines of Montilla-Moriles and is still very influential in the region, and retains its unique processes of maturation of the wine.
