Our history

The Melendez Molleda family, heirs of a long viticulture tradition in Cariñena, decided in 2000 to start this project to produce wines with grapes from their own vineyards. Wines with a strong varietal character, reflection of the soil and produced mainly with native varieties, Garnacha (Grenache) and Cariñena (Carignan).

In Tosos, in the province of Zaragoza (Spain´s Northeast) at an altitude of 750 metres and atop a hill surrounded by a sea of vineyards stands the Meléndez-Molleda family’s winery. The highest winery in Cariñena (Carignan)´s P.D.o.O.

"Our wines reflect the passion for our soil and the essence of the native varieties in their natural environment"

The Hacienda Molleda winery stands in the centre of the estate, surrounded by its vineyards and by breathtaking landscapes towards the Algairén Sierra. A beautiful Mudejar style building, with caravista brick walls, windows with semicircular arches, in accordance with the area’s Mudejar tradition.

The estate

The viticulture family estate with the highest altitude and largest extension of the PDoO rainfed land, origin of the winery which was built to only produce its own grapes.

The winery

It´s designed in two levels, so that in the process of producing the wine, gravity is used, in a fall in which the grape gradually transforms into wine.

The facilities

The aromas of the wine and the toasted flavors imparted by the barrels immerse you in an ambience that conveys this family’s passion for winemaking. With a production capacity of 1,325,000 litres of wine, the facilities combine innovation with tradition. Stainless steel storages and French and American oak barrels which have been selected for every type of wine.

The wines

The soil´s character and the essence of the old Garnacha (Grenache) and Cariñena (Carignan) vines provide us with a treasure-like concentrated fruit. Wines with a strong varietal character, which are also round and balanced. That´s how the wines of Hacienda Molleda, GHM, Finca la Matea and Tierra de Andros are, our most emblematic wines.
