Gil Family Estates owns or controls approximately 1,766 hectares (approximately 4,364 acres) of vineyards throughout their eleven wineries physically scattered across eleven different D.O.s, Designated Viticultural Areas, in Spain. Each winery has its own personality perfectly defined but working in excellent tuning with the rest. Gil Family Estates has unwavering focus on indigenous terrior-driven wines of outstanding value.
The first winery, Bodegas Juan Gil, was founded in 1916, when Juan Gil Gimènez, a stone mason and great-grandfather of the present generation, established the winery in the heart of Jumilla. Over 100 years of winery history, spanning four generations of continued family ownership, included a turbulent restructuring of the family business and led to the company’s rebirth into a global wine powerhouse. Today, all of the wineries under Gil Family Estates are run by brothers, Miguel and Ángel Gil.
Since 1999, the rapid ascension of the Company has been built upon an absolute commitment to seemingly risky wine investments in outlier appellations. These bets have paid off.
The Gil Family Estates portfolio of wines is sold in over 40 countries internationally and distributed in all 50 U.S. states.
United, in a single brand, a selection of wines from different origins, yet is connected by the spirit of quality and tradition.
“The land is where everything begins. Commitment to the environment in and around our vineyards is of utmost importance which is why we invest in renewable energy sources and sustainability.
We owe everything to our soils and our vineyards. We respect the land, and by preserving everything we have learned in the last 100 years, we will continue to responsibly produce great wines for generations,”
– Miguel Gil, Proprietor of Gil Family Estates
