Cuatro Rayas' history as a winery dates back to 1935. 80 years of effort have made Cuatro Rayas the standard in Spanish white wines.Today, Cuatro Rayas produces nearly 20% of the wine bottled in DO Rueda, with an annual production level of 15 million bottles. Our wines, made mainly from the Verdejo grape varietal, lead white wine consumption in Spain. Our wines also have a large influence in foreign markets, with a presence in over 50 countries.
Angel Calleja is among the first group of winemakers to graduate from “La Escuela de la Vid” in Madrid in 1975. He immediately took over the Technical Department of Cuatro Rayas. Since then, he has continued to grow as a winemaker working to ensure the winery grows in production and quality. Angel is one of the most prestigious winemakers not only in our area but also nationally. He is a member of the tasting panels of the Regulatory Boards of Rueda, Toro and Cigales, as well as a judge for the Zarcillo and Manojo awards.
