Félix Callejo was born in Sotillo de la Ribera, and comes from a family with long wine tradition. Both his grandfather Faustino and his father Félix owned vineyards and also worked as commercial agents, selling batches of wine produced in Sotillo. He joined forces with Pilar, also a native of Sotillo, to found Bodegas Félix Callejo in 1989, when they produced their first harvest. He has always travelled the world to promote the excellence of his wines. The fourth generation of the family has picked up the baton: José Félix and Noelia are wine experts, Cristina manages foreign trade, and Beatriz is in charge of domestic trade.
The vineyards are planted with the Tempranillo variety and spread out over 90 ha. in Sotillo de la Ribera. The land has been divided into 23 plots using different modalities to imprint the wines with rich textures.
