History of Bodegas Tesalia
Every great brand has a memorable story behind it. The Tesalia is the story of a family that had the dream of making a wine in the mountains of Cádiz so that the world could also enjoy the fruit of that wonderful land. The climate at the Tesalia Estate is warm and sunny, tempered by the influences of the Grazalema mountain range, the Mediterranean and Atlantic oceans, the water mass from huge local reservoirs. Here, craftsmanship in the vineyard balances aeration and shade on gentle north facing slopes helped by cool air of the mountain and the sea breezes.
