History Of The Winery

Over time, wine improves and life is enriched

Juan Otero Colino Founder of Bodegas Otero (1906)

Since 1906, when Mr. Juan Otero Colino entered the world of wine by opening a small local vineyard in Benavente, we have been adapting to the changes, tastes and consumer habits of our customers, as well as to the technology necessary for the production of the best wine.

His entrepreneurship led him to purchase some land, and build a store that opened in 1911. Today, it is an underground cellar with a capacity of 40,000 liters.

When his youngest son, Mr. Manuel Otero, joined the family business in 1950, he started the construction of a winery, taking the underground warehouse as a starting-point. During the wine harvest in 1952, we had a trial with new ideas and thus, the next wine harvest marked the beginning of a new stage for the business.

The constructions continue every season, increasing the commercial capacity, and updating the cellar.

In 1963, we purchased some new land for the cellar extension, with the intent of making the wine section independent from the rest of the beverage products that we sold, and also to start bottling our own wine. The 25th of June of 1965, Bodegas Otero, S.A. was constituted as a company.

Since 1984, the Winery has had the help of the third generation: Mr. Julio Otero, who joined the company that year, and is the current CEO.

The reality of Bodegas Otero, after so many changes and extensions, is like a puzzle whose pieces have been fitting into place during all these years. Starting from a small underground cellar at the beginning of the century, we got to create a special Winery that nicely surprises those who visit us.
