Naked Winemaker

Oscar Aragon

A love of the land and passion for traditions led Oscar straight into the vineyard

    • 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!
