About Legado MuÑoz
The Muñoz family owns 80 Has (200 acres) of carefully selected vineyards around Noblejas. Deliberate selection of the vines, crop thinning and poor calcareous soils combine to produce concentrated and structured wines. Yields are kept significantly lower than what is usual in the region. The average age of the vines is 30 years. Only native yeasts are used.
The family recently acquired a former 17th century subterranean cellar excavated in the rock. The installations are being painstakingly restored and are being used already to age the top wines of the Estate in perfect conditions of temperature and humidity. Bottling takes place after a very light filtration. In 2004 the winemaker, Bienvenido Muñoz, was chosen Winemaker of the Year in Castilla la Mancha.
