We, the Sánchez’s family, founded the Cortijo El Cura winery in 1998 with the aim of offering the first organic wines in the province of Almería. Perhaps key to the success of this family business lies in the cooperation, the work and the consistancy of all its members. We make high quality and completely organic products by respecting the environment and betting on sustainable development: for in our opinion if the development is not sustainable, it should not be considered as development.
The Cortijo El Cura winery lies about 1000 meters above sea level, between the Sierra Nevada and the Sierra de Gádor; specifically within the boundary of the town of Laujar de Andarax, the capital of La Alpujarra of Almería. The winery is immersed in history and nature thanks to its unique location within the Sierra Nevada Natural Park - the most important in Spain because of the high amount of locally specific types of flora - as well as due to being a village in the region of La Alpujarra.
