Casa lo Alto is a wine estate from 1796 with more than 150 hectares, of which more than 60 are vineyards.


The Finca, located on top of a hill (hence its name), is located in the Requena-Utiel region, and is also home to 30 hectares of almond trees and some 60 of forest mass that make the place a unique enclave where are located both the traditional winery founded in 1976 and the farmhouse, which originally served to house day laborers.


 The system of winemaking, with minimal intervention, seeks to ensure that the character of the wines is defined solely by the uniqueness of the site, and in this line, comprehensive intervention emerges in the farmhouse with which Bodegas Murviedro seeks to create an immersive space where guests can enjoy all the comforts of today in an atmosphere that preserves the essence of a rural environment matured over time.


 To do this, and following the philosophy of minimal intervention applied in wine production, the action is deeply respectful of traditional materials and systems (such as fired clay flooring or wooden slabs and beams), which dialogue with some other elements in a subtle way. To this is added the will to open the house completely to the environment, with views that both from the common areas and from the rooms allow to dominate from the top of the hill the extensions of vineyards that expands on the horizon.


 The result is a space that is perceived as completely new and renewed, but which in no case seeks to turn its back on its history, but steeps itself in it to continue breathing tradition from the modernity of the present.
