The agricultural co-operative "Cooperativa del Campo "San Ginés"" was founded in 1956 by 36 local pioneers in regional wine growing. Today, the Co-operative "San Ginés" is the most important enterprise in the town of Casas de Benítez.
Our co-operative and vineyards are situated in the south-east of Cuenca province, in the "Júcar Valley", where the Mediterranean weather makes our land ideal for cultivating the best wines.
This location enjoys ideal conditions for wine-growing, on an 800 m. high plateau with winds from the Mediterranean and perfect humidity. Its soil is rich, formed of clay and a boulder cloak, also known as "guijarro". These conditions have earned our wines their own appellation: "D.O. Ribera del Jucar".
