Bodegas Parra Dorada's history
The story of the winery dates back from 1850, when the Castro family founded a winery in Santa Cruz de Mudela, in the Spanish region of Valdepeñas. Castros’ winery has always been a family business, tied on the close relations between all relatives. Bodegas Parra Dorada was consequently born thanks to the close relationship between the Castro family and the Ishkovs, a Russian spirits maker family. The Ishkovs were born in Siberia and many generations of the Ishkovs produced strong and tasty traditional Siberian liquors, made out of natural ingredients such as hazelnut, blueberry, juniper, or pine and cedar shoots. Nowadays the Ishkovs produce Siberian liquors at a modern production plant.
Bodegas Parra Dorada is in fact a winemaking project whose aim is to create easy to drink, interesting and memorable wines that match the tastes and requirements of new consumers. In this project, both Castros and the Ishkovs have been very successful at combining the two centuries-old Castros’ winemaking tradition with the innovative spirit of the Ishkovs.
