About the wine

We couldn't let this one-off Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero's No.1 winery, fly over our heads
  • Sitting at a towering 1000 meter altitude and consisting of rare old vines ranging from 50 to 100 years old, it's little wonder that Cillar de Silos was voted the best Winery in Ribera del Duero. As an area with famously harsh conditions this was by no means an easy task, but Oscar only went and made it look like a walk in the park.
  • A master of the elements he may be, but when the Covid Crisis hit the future of Cillar de Silos flew out of Oscar's control entirely. Vital business from restaurants fast fell by the wayside, leaving impeccable wines vulnerable to being sent down the drain. With Angel funding we were able to step in with a helping hand for Oscar and his community.
  • The Cillar de Silos Crianza is a prefect example of Riberan elegance and complexity. The high altitude of the vineyard paired with the age of its vines is a dream combo, providing the kind of minerality and freshness you're likely to see once in a blue moon. The delicate fruit flavours of blackberries and ripe plums chime perfectly with smokiness from the French oak barrels. This is Fine Wine taken to the max.

Meet the winemaker - Oscar Aragon

  • In Northern Spain, just a few kilometres South West of Rioja, lies Ribera del Duero - a beautiful valley with a famously harsh climate that is known for its knockout reds and classy whites. It’s here where Oscar and his family call home. 
  • The area saw a boom in popularity in the 90’s which is precisely when the Aragon family opened the doors of ‘Cillar de Silos’ and they have been producing some lip-smackingly good tipples ever since. It’s a true family affair there with their father, Amelio (alongside a group of pickers with an average age of 75!), carefully hand harvesting the grapes each year.
  • Oscar’s deep love of the land and passion for wine led him away from farming cereals and straight into the vineyards and you can look forward to some seriously elegant little numbers from this winery. It’s already picked up a number of impressive awards - including one for best winery in the region!
