Señorío de Barahonda had it's beginning in 1925 as Bodegas Antonio Candela, which operates separately and still stands in the center of Yecla. Both owned by the Candela Family, day to day operations are run by the 4th generation of the family, Alfredo Candela and brother, Antonio. Their vineyards cover 840 acres in and around the town of Yecla, in Murcia. It is in the Altiplano district; a transitional zone between Spain's central plateau and the Mediterranean, surrounded by a ring of low mountain ranges.
The soil is composed of limestone and chalk topsoil with a clay and gravel subsoil, low in organic matter. They are deep and drain well. The water retaining clay subsoil is essential for the health of vine in such an arid climate. Due to poor sustenance, yields are low, producing smaller berries with higher skin to juice ratio. This results in greater overall concentration.
What makes Señorío de Barahonda unique? Among the oldest Monastrell vines in Spain. Founded in 1925, it is the oldest wineries in Yecla. State of the art winery with estate owned vineyards. One of Señorío de Barahonda's primary goals is to reveal the Monastrell's great potential. The genesis of this ambition developed into the Bellum project.
