| BODEGAS ALMIJARA started making wine in 1993 with the production of the now well-known VINOS JAREL, and in the year 2000 our Denominations of Origin Malaga and Sierra de Malaga were awarded.
Since then and up to the present day, we have worked year after year to improve quality and consistency. We are dedicated to ensuring that our wines are a modern expression of the grape tradition of this area, by using the most modern technology available. The muscatel grape serves as an essential, indisputable sign of our culture.
The BodegasAlmijara`s origins go back to the 19th century when the building started life as a “ La Resinera”, a factory producing resin. It is still known as such by some of the older villagers. The factory continued as such until the years of the Spanish Civil War.
Then people began picking muscatel grapes for the production of raisins. This raisin production still continues today, but in a much reduced form.
Many years later, somewhere near the 70s, it would turn into a Bodega, but it was not until the year 1993 that “Bodegas Almijara” was consolidated into a business.
