Majuelos de Callejo is a red wine produced by Bodegas Felix Callejo with Tinta Fina in the D.O. Ribera del Duero.
"Majuelo is a traditional Castilian word used by his grandparents to refer to vineyards, generally small in size, with irregularly distributed vines and always in marginal, poor soils.
This is the origin of the idea of elaborating this wine, from a selection of Tinto Fino grapes in gravel soils, which are marginal and very poor soils, with little vigour, achieving a perfect balance giving very fine and elegant wines, with a long life. This wine takes us back to our childhood, when all the grandchildren helped our grandmother Daría in the harvest of her Majuelos in Sotillo de la Ribera".
