We feel as much depositors of a historical legacy and an unaltered environment as its guardians to bring it to the future.
This is the philosophy that we want to print to our wines: a solid starting point, based on the excellent grapes that this land gives us, and processing techniques that practically simply respect these grapes to the fullest.
Today the three daughters of Juan José Moreno Alarcón continue at the head of the winery, always following the initial idea: to maintain the family character and to get wines that speak of the land where they were born and with small productions.
In our concept of wine tradition is perfectly combined with today: respect for artisanal viticulture is complemented by technological advances such as the weather station, the wetting and temperature control equipment or the remote sensing system that allows us to know exactly the real state of the vineyard.
All this sets up an innovative, long-term and above all exciting project.
Juan José Moreno Alarcón
(1933 – 2011)
As a young man, he began working in the summers selling the wood his family produced in his sawdger's sierra de Alcaraz. One of the usual stops of his tours of southern La Mancha was the Montanchuelos estate, and it was in those summers that his illusion of producing his own wines took shape there. He was able to fulfill his goal already at maturity, when he founded Bodegas Calar with a very concrete idea: to make the best wine that gave that land.
The name of the winery is a tribute to its hometown, Riópar, where the Calar del Río Mundo is located.
Sagrario Moreno Carmona
Graduated in Art History and vocational pianist, she has inherited from her father the love of Montanchuelos and her level of demand.
His ideal wine is one that conveys the personality of his place of origin, and he thinks that winemaking, with all that has a multidisciplinary and creative process, should be considered within the Fine Arts.
