“Pico Cuadro is an impressive newcomer to these pages…” The Wine Advocate Robert Parker
Bodegas Pico Cuadro is an impressive newcomer to these pages. It is a family-owned winery that began operations in 2004 with 12 acres of vines ranging from 20 to 90+ years of age. Felipe Castrillo is the man in charge of the cellar and the originator of the project. Four of the 5 wines are barrel samples from the great 2009 vintage in Ribera del Duero with the wines composed of 100% Tempranillo raised in French oak.
No more sediment in your glass
The leading Basque chef, Martin Berasategui, has created a bottle with a system in which impurities in the wine are decanted and the sediment doesn’t end up in your glass when the wine is served. Pico Cuadro uses this special bottle for natural decanting.
The Wine Spectator awards 90 points to Pico Cuadro 2007

An exceptional wine in an exceptional bottle.
With a limited release of 700 bottles, we have selected at Pico Cuadro our best batch of wine and bottled it in an exceptional bottle that has been hand-crafted by Master Glass Blowers from the Spanish Royal Glass Factory at La Granja in the region of Segovia.This collection piece is an exact reproduction of the “name” model of the English bottle manufactured in 1650 in the Royal Factory and which is today on display as part of the permanent collection at the National Foundation Centre Museum for Glass.
Pico Cuadro Origen
At the end of 2011 we will be presenting our star wine at Bodegas Pico Cuadro. This wine has enjoyed all our loving care and attention from the moment its grapes were selected on the vines.It is the fruit of one vineyard, one vat, and 30 barrels. Unblended, it expresses a simplicity typical of truly great wines. Carefully monitored from vine to bottle, this is the stand-out wine of the bodega, and is only produced in the best vintages.
Expected release on the market: end of 2011.
