At the end of 1996, the marriage Martínez & Muñoz acquired the farm named “Los Ceperos” with the purpose of its transformation and agricultural exploitation.
This 18th Century farmhouse after its reconstruction was the family’s holiday house and the place of the first experiences in fermentation with Monastrell’s grape which has been cultivated in this area for several years.
In 1999 the replantation and the enlargement of vineyard’s surface was finished, and incorporated the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The same year it was also constituted the society Bodegas Los Ceperos, which is named after the farm and the land.
There is a modern and spacious factory with enough capacity to increase future productions of the wine. The underground cellar for the large barrels and the wine-rack is finished and there are modern warehouses for the fermentation. There is an additional area to store the large oak barrels for maturing.
