The Oddbins Take

Like the Royal Family at the moment, Cillar de Silos just go from strength to strength, and they don’t even have Kate Middleton on their team. The Aragón family has made wine for personal consumption for as long as records go, but in the 1970s Amalio Aragón started acquiring top vineyard sites in Ribera del Duero. His grandson, Óscar, is now head winemaker and is known for making incredible wines, like this deep, meditative, luscious and minerally Tempranillo. Who needs Kate?

The Oxford Wine Companion to Wine calls Cillar de Silos a “leading challenger” to the title of maker of the very finest wines of Ribera del Duero. Grandfather Amalio Aragón founded Cillar de Silos with his sons Jesús, Roberto and Óscar. Now the next generation runs the winery. Roberto Aragón is the General Manager, responsible for the business side of the company. Younger brother Óscar Aragón trained as a winemaker, and is now the Head Winemaker and Viticulturist of Cillar de Silos. Their sister Amelia Aragón travels around the world as the Export Manager whilst simultaneously studying for the Master of Wine degree.
