Located in the municipality of Socuéllamos, in the province of Ciudad Real, in the heart of La Mancha, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega, was born thanks to the illusion of 25 farmers who in 1955 they met in order to give legal character to the project they had already had in common for many years: the processing of their harvests under a cooperative system.
Over the years Bodegas Cristo de la Vega has grown and produced increasingly sophisticated wines, the result of the enthusiasm and hard work of an entire village, where today we continue to preserve our traditions and our passion for what we do best.
Thanks to this union and desire to excel, our wines can be enjoyed in more and more corners of the world.
From its foundation to the present day, at Bodegas Cristo de la Vega we continue to preserve the essence of our passion for wine, passed down from generation to generation, with a single objective: to improve, year after year, the winery's commitment to the world of wine. This is how the 25 founding members of the cooperative conceived it.
The love, passion and effort we put into making high quality wines is the result of the knowledge transmitted over time.
Thanks to this spirit of constant growth and renewal, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega is able to offer today recognized national and international brands such as "Yugo", "Marqués de Castilla" or "La Vida Bohemia".
