Flores de Callejo is a single-variety Tempranillo red wine made by Félix Callejo winery in the D.O. Ribera de Duero.

Bodegas Félix Callejo
 was set up in 1989 in northern Ribera del Duero, specifically in Sotillo de la Ribera (Burgos) and named after its founder. This is a dream that began when he was only 16 years old and took over the family wine broker business to then start making his own wines.

The Flores de Callejo wine comes from vines over 40 years old planted in loamy clay soils. Lying in the highest part of the Douro Valley, between 850 and 930 metres above sea level, this is a privileged enclave within the denomination. The sudden temperature changes between day and night help the grapes to develop a perfect balance between maturity and acidity. As soon as they reach this point of ripeness, manual harvest begins in boxes.

In the winery, the Flores de Callejo grapes pass over a rigorous double selection table. Then the grapes are destemmed and without being squeezed, they are put in stainless steel tanks for a cold pre-fermentation at 10°C. Then the native yeasts begin to spontaneously ferment around the fifth day after racking and it is left to macerate with the skins for 3 days. Finally, it is transferred to French oak barrels to age for 6 months before bottling.

Flores de Callejo is the youngest wine in the Félix Callejo collection. A red wine with youthful fruit and freshness that is perfect for enjoying straight away.
