The Monte Amán S.L. bodegas and vineyards are situated in Castrillo Solarana. The municipal district and area belong to the region of Ribera del Arlanza where the tradition of elaborating wine and cultivating vines goes back to Roman times, in the III century, having vestige in the region of Lara and La Sierra de Covarrubias. In the Visigoth times, vineyards were cultivated in Quintanilla de las Viñas, but it is in the 9th and 10th centuries that the viticultural re-population of Ribera del Arlanza is produced.
Current owners took over the estate in 1985, with a constantly expanding grape plantation. In 1989 the Barbadillo García family decided to build the industrial premises with modern installations, with the aim of producing quality wines. Later on they age in American oak casks.
Varietals Produced: Tinta del país (Tempranillo) and Cabernet Sauvignon.
