Hello, I am Jesús Ángel Velado Quintero, and I introduce myself as a wine maker because that is what I am and I believe that there is no other word that better defines and expresses my reality. This project was born in 2013, after a long experience in the world of viticulture and oenology, which began in 1998 stepping on the poor lands of the vineyards of Gordoncillo (León), the village where I was born and where I understood that “only in scarcity can you reach the depths of the vine” and with the aim of developing my own wines, based on quality, simplicity and uniqueness, “from the vineyard to the mouth”.
My more than 20 years of experience have taken me all over Spain, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, where I work continuously as technical oenological responsible, all this and my continuous travels around Europe, give me a more global vision of winemaking and allow me to go a little further every year in the search for the continuous improvement of my own wines.
Besides, being part of the tasting committees of several D.O. of Castilla y León, keeps me at the forefront of what is being done in different territories, tasting a wide range of different wines helps me to achieve this goal.
Quality is something fundamental in this journey and for this, the most important thing is to obtain the best grapes from the area, to be able to transport to each bottle, a piece of the terroir where they are grown, understanding by terroir, the landscapes, soils, climatology, culture and landscape that make up the habitat of the “majuelo”.
My wines are to be drunk, enjoyed and shared, as I say, wines for the whole bottle.
This is my intention, and this is my project, to tell from the wine the story of the land that sustains it, wrapping it in a current and casual image to bring it closer to everyone, or rather, to bring anyone who wants to discover a true story, the story of a wine that inhabits the most rogue side of life.
