La del Terreno
Julia Casado - Bodega Modular La del Terreno, Bullas, Murcia
Julia’s first real exposure to winemaking was in Pfalz while playing cello at a local winery. Falling in love with the art of turning grapes into wine, she worked at wineries in Chile in Uruguay and
the legendary Vega Sicilia. When she returned to her native Murcia she joined Casa Castillo in D.O. Jumilla. It is while here she rented a 3.5 hectare vineyard of 50 year old bush vinemonastrell and in 2015 produced her first wine - La del Terreno.
In 2016 she decided to move
her project to Bullas and built a mobile sustainable winery from modular shipping containers.
Now making three wines, two from monastrell and one from garnacha, her vineyards are farmed organically, the fruit foot trod, spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts, no fining or
filtration and only minimal sulphur added at bottling.
