A vineyard and a family
Coloma vineyards and winery is strictly family-run; our crew works maintaining the guiding principles and the loving care that this vocation so deservedly demands.
We have been vine growers and producers for decades, since we all know that making good wine requires getting involved in every single stage.
The winemaking tradition of the Coloma family began at the end of the 19th century when Don Francisco Coloma started making home-made wines for the locals of his hometown, Villanueva de los Infantes Valladolid, Spain.
Years later, one of his sons, José Félix, seeking a warmer weather, decided to continue the winemaking tradition down South in Extremadura.
It was in Alvarado, along the river-banks of Limonetes creek, a tributary of Guadiana river, where he planted the first vines.
Taking advantage of this gentle climate, José Félix Coloma has been growing native Spanish traditional varieties such as: Garnacha Tintorera, Alarije and Graciano. Later on he introduced world-wide known varieties such as Merlot, Pinot Noir and Muscat.
