The winery is placed in the Valley of the Aragona, 10 kilometers north of the town of Jumilla, in the "top boundary", so named because it is the highest altitude in the municipality.
The vineyards, located in the surrounding of the winery are planted on soils mostly of limestone and very stony surface. In the basement, about 30/40 cm. depth is a layer of coarse (medium consistency limestone) that covers the entire vineyard; its thickness ranges between 15 and 30 cm, having under a very sandy soil where the roots extend. The altitude varies from 700 m. and 850 m. above the sea level. They consist of small plots with a total of 32 hectares of the Monastrell variety, with some very old vines -almost centenarians-, 12 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon vines, and 1.8 acres of Syrah planted on hills facing the north.

Bodegas El Nido was established in collaboration with the Gil family of Bodegas Juan Gil.
We utilise mature plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, together with ancient Monastrell ( Mataro ) selections from the mountain valleys North of Jumilla. Clio is composed from 60-70% Monastrell, with finishing touches of Cabernet and Syrah. The individual parcels are matured for 24 Months in an eclectic collection of new American and French barrels. The wine benefits from a year of bottle maturation before release.
