With thirty years of experience, the family initiated the modernization of the vineyard in 1997, going on to complete the construction of the bodega and putting the finishing touches to what would become the production estates.
The initiative sprang up thanks to the excellent conditions offered by the area for the cultivation of vines, and thanks to an opportune moment presented by the quality-wine markets.
Bodegas Fontana has recently started a new Project consisting of the zoning – in units of micro terroirs – of its vineyards belonging to the Monte Carbonero Estate. The prime objective of this project is to be able to restructure the harvesting zones. This relates to planned harvests according to the different qualities of grape and also determines the precise form of specific areas dedicated to either young wines, crianzas or top-shelf wines. In addition, the bodega is hoping to adopt optimum viticultural
procedures that will be adapted to each micro-terroir and to each required type.
Originality, constant updates and the enterprising spirit of this company are characteristics that are not limited to the bodega; the Cantarero family has been one of the major contributors in bringing about changes in the area. They have undertaken important work in order to achieve the recognition of new zones with the “Designation of Origin” status, such as Uclés. This young bodega is characterized by its investment in the future through enological innovation and through the unwavering quality
of its wines, obtained from its vineyards, which stretch over a 500 hectare area in the provinces of Cuenca and Toledo.
