El Barraco

Don Juan del Águila is a cooperative effort founded in 1956 by the growers of the town of El Barraco in the province of Avila. With the co-ops in the area suffering due to stagnant practices, old equipment, and a lack of vision for the future, Winemaker Daniel Ramos has saved this bodega and taken it to a whole new level. New energy has been injected into the bodega along  with new vinification practices, vineyard management advice to the growers with a growing focus on natural grape-growing.
