Bodegas Grupo Yllera
Castilla y León, Spain
Yllera was founded in 1970 and is strategically located in the most exclusive viticulture area in Spain, being Rueda the village where it's emblematic wineries are. Yllera has vineyards in the key areas of Castilla y León, two of which are the most well known for Spain as wine areas being Rioja and Ribera Del Duerro. The Yllera family has elaborated quality wines for 6 generations. Currently it is managed by a team of young professionals led by the siblings Marcos and Carlos Yllera.
The history began with the elaboration of the blanco verdejo wine. The Yllera family was a pioneer in the region (with the launch of the legendary Cantosan wine) as well as being the founding body from the Regulatory Board of the Denominación de Origen Rueda, the first denomination created in Castilla y León.
Another milestone in the history was the launch of the 5.5 in 2009 - here Yllera started a revolution in its sector.
