WEBSITE

The Frias family founded Bodegas Estefania in 1999, converting an old creamery into the winery. Renowned winemaker Raúl Pérez has been at the helm of the project since its inception. Their flagship brand of wines, Tilenus, pays tribute to the Roman heritage of the region. Marked on the label by a Roman coin found in one of the vineyards, Tilenus is named for the Celtic god of war, Teleno.
