About the winery

The history of “Castillo de Madax” goes back to the beginning of the 12th century with the construction of a small muslim fortification in a border crossing area between the lands of present-day Albacete and Murcia, in southeast Spain. The name of the castle has its origin in the reeds in which the fortress is established, as it is these reeds that give it the name “Madax” (reed beds in Arabic).
