The beginning of the professional involvement of the Frutos Villar family in the wine market is to be traced back to the dawning of this century, when on a purely local basis we bought up and sold wine from the region of Toro.
Well before the officially demarcated wine regions of Spain, the so-called “Denominaciones de Origen” or “DOs”, came into being, we set up our first winery at Toro in 1920. True to our ideal of renewal and progress, in 1960 we established our second winery in Cigales.
Upon the consolidation of the demarcated regions, in 1988 the Frutos Villar family purchased Bodegas Santa Eulalia, a winery belonging to the Ribera del Duero region.
At Bodegas Frutos Villar, whilst continuing to make great wines at those of our own vineyards not belonging to any “Denominación de Origen”, and in an endeavour to encompass all the demarcated regions of Castilla, in 1990 we began to market wines from the Rueda “DO”.
