Our Winery

Félix Callejo was born in June 1943 at Sotillo de la Ribera. His family had a long tradition of working in the wine world. Both his grandfather, Faustino, and his father, Felix, owned vineyards and were also “corredores de vino”, or local wine brokers, who acted as agents to find buyers for batches of wine produced by growers in Sotillo. 

The Callejo family winery has now passed into the hands of the second generation, and is growing in new and exciting directions under the leadership of the four Callejo siblings. José Félix and Noelia Callejo handle wine production, while Cristina and Beatriz Callejo run the commercial aspects of the business.

José Félix Callejo trained at the hihgly esteemed Pétrus winery, Pomerol, France, and at the Miguel Torres winery of Curicó, Chile.  Since 2000 he has been lead winemaker of Bodegas Félix Callejo.  Since 2009, José Félix has been supported by Noelia Callejo.  Noelia has trained at Argentina's Viña Cobos winery and at Araujo Estate Wines in Napa Valley, California.

Callejo wines derive their caracter from Sotillo de la Ribera, located to the north of the Duero river.  We work with our owned 60 hectares of Tempranillo wineyards, distributed in 25 plots exhibiting a diverse profile of soils thanks to our position ~900 m above sea level.  We use ecological management techniques, preserving the caracter of our terrain, which allows us to reliably create wines that authentically express the full flavor of the land.

"Our wines are the reflection of our passion for our land"

Name:
Jose Felix Callejo
Bio:

José Félix Callejo graduated in Viticulture and Oenology at the “Escuela de la Vid y el Vino” and gained a Masters degree in Viticulture,Oenology and Wine Legislation from the University Polytechnic of Madrid.He has acquired wine-making experience in different regions around the world, such as in Chile in 2000 with Torres and in France in 1999 at Chateau Pétrus. In 1999 I took charge of running the technical side of the winery, looking after both the vineyard and the wine-making process. It’s a job that brings a lot of excitement, it keeps me in close contact with nature and there’s the thrill of bringing into the world some great wine.
