About Us


In March 31 rst 1976, Ing. Milton Castellanos Espinoza and his beloved wife Doña Ana Hebe Cortez Vaca Guzmán decided to produce their very first “botella N° 1” at their winery. This sets this date as the birth of Aranjuez Wines, which ever since, remains as a family business.

We believe our wines are product of our teamwork. From their beginnings at the vineyard, going through the winery, to all the delicate work it implies by the company. Our wines are the reflection of the dedication and love we put day by day. All our work is to gratefully reciprocate all those whom make us part of their special moments.

Our wine variety reflects our soul (spirit) and philosophy. From our young and fruity wines as the “Gran Vino”, our unmistakable Red and White Terruño, to the most complex and stylish wines. All our wines carry in themselves the identity of the Tarija´s valley and great altitude.

Tannat of Aranjuez

We are experts and pioneers in the production of the Tannat variety. It was first introduced to Bolivia the year 1999 in our Lot No. 40 at our Santa Ana la Nueva vineyard. Later, we produced the first Tannat grapes in the country, giving origin to the bi-varietal Dúo Red -Tannat & Merlot. Later, our Tannat emerged as the first mono-varietal of this strain. Then, it was the perfect time for Juan Cruz- Grand Reserve, our 100% Tannat, winner of the first OIV Gold Medal for Bolivia. We have recently announced the Tannat Origen, Single-Vineyard, made exclusively with the grapes of the first Tannat strains ever planted in Bolivia from our Lot No. 40.
Our wines, are not only award winning. But most importantly, they also win the hearts of our customers, to whom we dedicate all our wines. CHEERS!!
