It is a family project that was born in 1998 with the planting of our first vineyard that currently extends to over 14 hectares of the varieties Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah.
Daniel García-Pita, father and son, were sure that in this exceptional environment a "great wine from Madrid" could be obtained, a wine truly faithful to its terroir. That is why they choose to follow a biodynamic viticulture, a type of cultivation that respects the natural cycles of the earth. The viticulture of the project, Jérôme Bougnaud, considers: "the soil is a living being". For this French winemaker, a great defender of this type of crop, biodynamics allows us to understand things in depth and becomes also a philosophy of life.
El Regajal Selección Especial and Las Retamas de El Regajal, made in our winery in Madrid, belong to the Denomination of Origin "Vinos de Madrid", a Denomination in which wineries that work with dedication and care produce wines of very different style. The Wines of Madrid gain in prestige from year to year thanks to the great wines that, like those of our winery, are made in the Community of Madrid. Undoubtedly, the wines of Madrid grow and are increasingly more attractive to the most demanding wine lover.
El Regajal also participates in the elaboration of Galia, a project fruit of the concerns of Daniel Garcia-Pita Jr, and Jerome Bougnaud. This project allows them to satisfy the long-felt desire to contribute to the knowledge of an important part of the cultural heritage of the Spanish countryside: wisdom and good work for centuries of winemakers who cultivate their terroirs according to the tradition in which Jerome was educated. They are terroirs with almost century-old vines in the provinces of Soria, Burgos and Valladolid.
THE ESTATE HAS A MODERN WINERY WHERE OUR WINES AGE IN FRENCH OAK BARRELS
VISITS, TASTINGS AND WINE TOURISM
Following the current patterns of wine tourism around the world, El Regajal makes available to the public several options to approach the culture of wine. The winery has a large and bright tasting room, suitable for holding tastings for both individuals and groups.
We organize visits to our vineyards in which the different tasks of a complete crop cycle are explained. Later, inside our winery, this visit is completed with a detailed explanation of the vinification, aging and maturing processes of our wines. During the visit all our wines are tasted in their various elaboration phase.
