It was established in 1999 by the Frías family. The project is the result of a dream: producing high-quality single varietal wines with reminiscence of past times.

The story of the relationship between man and land is repeated once more at Bodegas Estefanía. This is the relationship between a family business, and the beautiful region of El Bierzo with its emblematic Mencía variety.

The flagship of the winery – the Brand Tilenus – was born aiming to be one of the greatest wines. From the very roots and using state-of-the-art technology, their wines are the result of the attachment of some people to a beautiful land. These people love their vines, too old for others, that provide structure and almost forgotten flavours to wine. Vines that once crossed the ocean and were present in other continents.

Almost centenarian vines growing in old fields are the basis of their vineyards located on arid steep slopes at an average height of 700 m.

Every vine has a limited yield – usually lower than 1.2kg. The fruit is hand harvested at optimal ripeness in small crates of 10 to 15 kilos and again the grapes undergo a second selection on a sorting table in the cellar.

Once fermented the wines are aged in French oak barrels. Ageing length can vary depending on the features of each vineyard and year. The peace and the darkness in the barrel room is only disturbed by the oenologist and the winemaker, who must closely monitor the evolution of wines, and put an end to this stage when the wine has achieved an optimal balance.

Winemakers hope that you can taste the feelings that were put into each bottle of their wines: the love for this wonderful land named El Bierzo; the best grapes from our vineyards; the hard work of the oenologist, the technicians and producers, and the passion of Tilenus team.

Now you have an excellent wine on your hands. Just enjoy it!
