Abadia Retuerta is not just a winery. It is one of the most unique wine estates of the Iberian Peninsula due to its priceless natural, cultural and culinary heritage.

The Winery, located right in the Spain’s Wine Golden Mile, combines innovation in their processes and proposals with the rich winemaking tradition of the area. Their experience developing internationally acclaimed high quality wines is reflected in their diverse product catalog, which reveals the richness and potential of the diverse plots and terroirs of the estate.

The Estate is nestled in a privileged natural environment, which holds great habitat diversity: river banks, farmland, pine and holm oak forests, wetlands, rock and chalk slopes… Its fauna include a wide variety of birds and mammals such as the Iberian Wolf, while its forests stand out among its vegetation, with several unique monumental trees.

The Abbey of Santa María de Retuerta, 12th century, is a unique legacy due to the artistic and historical significance of its group of buildings, its seamless integration into the landscape and the feelings that occur within the shelter of its walls. This space houses a majestic hotel and a superb restaurant that makes up a high-level culinary proposal.

Granja Cantagrullas is an audacious project that honors life in the countryside and allows a closer and friendlier connection to nature.

This small artisanal cheese dairy aims to combine traditional and artisan craftsmanship with innovation, using the excellent milk from their family Castilian sheep flock, a native protected breed.

Their production is small but offers a diverse range of cheeses very different from those traditionally elaborated in the region, as much in their flavors as in their aromas, textures and formats. They produce artisan cheeses from raw sheep's milk, with lactic coagulation and mixed fermentations: mold ripened cheeses, soft cheeses, washed rind cheeses, fresh cheeses and exclusive spice cheeses.

Its environment congregates a good number of natural values, as it is the landscape in which it is situated, a true kaleidoscope of habitats and uses. Groups of Great Bustards and other steppe birds, share this space with the Cranes, that choose it to spend the winter, as well as some spectacular mammals such as the Iberian Wolf. Furthermore, the nature of its soil and the hydrological regime allow the existence of unique plant communities, typical of salt marshes and flooded areas.
