Concejo Bodegas is a family winery originally called Bodega Pilcar. It is located to the north east of Valladolid in northern Spain, in Castilla y Leon (Castile and Leon). You will find it near the village Valoria la Buena where they also run a hotel. The winery was founded long ago by the grandparents of Enrique Concejo, the current winemaker. Their names were Pilar and Carlos, whence the original name of the bodega.

Bodega Concejo has 25 hectares of vines in the DO Cigales. 15 ha are planted with the grape variety tino fino (tempranillo). At harvest, when the grapes arrive at the winery, they are sorted and then destemmed. After a light crushing they are put in stainless steel tanks for fermentation. When fermentation is finished the wine is transferred to oak barrels for some cuvees whereas others are kept in tank.

Bodega Concejo makes four different ranges of wines: Vina Concejo, with some aging in American and Franch barriques, Carreduenas Rosado (rosé) and Roble (oak aged), Suarenas Rosado and Roble, and Cutoli which is a white wine made from verdejo grapes.
