Slate house roofs, a wandering pilgrim on route to Santiago de Compostela and landscapes of unparalleled beauty. This is El Bierzo, an enclave where you can find Bodegas Estefania. In this valley bordered by mountains between León, Galicia and Asturias, 40 hectares of century old vines, surrounded by the silence of nature.

A land marked by a continental climate of a clear Atlantic influence, which keeps a moisture balance due to the Atlantic climate from Galicia, and dry, coming from Castile. These climates, along with its landscape and its minerally and clayey soils, produce a very special grape: Mencia, a red grape of excellent quality.

Bodegas Estefanía is a very special winery that was established in 1999 when the FRIAS family decided to recover an old creamery located in the village of Dehesas, in Ponferrada (León). In 2014, it forms part of the MGWines Group. The name of its main Brand, Tilenus, was taken from the primitive god “Teleno”, the Celtic god of war and equivalent to the Roman god Mars. The reason for naming the wine Tilenus was to pay tribute to that golden years of the Roman era in the Bierzo, which began to exploit the rich gold mines of the Médulas.

Present day, this era is etched on the wine labels with a roman coin that was found in one of the vineyards. All this has led to a winery that produces exclusive wines in a traditional way, very carefully selecting each grape.

Facilities that unveil the secrets of winemaking
Bodegas Estefanía has a production winery that was built combining materials such as slate, stone and wood, praising the area’s traditional architecture. Each production phase has been prepared in a specific way, monitoring the temperature, moisture and light.

In the case of the barrel room, this has around one thousand Bordeaux barrels, manufactured by the most prestigious barrel-making cooperage firms, mostly French oak.
