Since 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez built the winery, one clear idea has motivated every generation since to achieve the critical claim we see today: being proud of your work and doing a good job! Aside from the extensive family history, the big change came in 2003 when Miguel Gil built a new, state of the art winery among the highest vineyards of the DO. The idea was clear, to ensure the great quality fruit arrived quickly and at peak quality into the winery. Juan Gil vineyards are maintained as sustainably and with as much respect for the local ecosystem as possible. For this reason, Juan Gil have invested a lot of money into generating their own power and water and as such are now completely "off-grid".
