The first steps of this winery began to bear fruit at the end of 2001, as a result of the collaboration agreement between the Gil Family and Chris Ringland, one of the best Australian winemakers.
The first harvest that is commercialized is the one corresponding to the 2002 vintage under the El Nido and Clío brands.
In the 2009 campaign the first harvest of Corteo is made, which completes the current range of wines from Bodegas El Nido.
The winery is located in the Valle de la Aragona, 10 kilometers north of the city of Jumilla, within the "upper limit", so called because it is the highest altitude area within the municipality of this city.
The vineyards, located in the vicinity of the winery, are mostly planted on very calcareous and stony soils on their surface. In the subsoil, about 30/40 cm. deep, is a layer of coarse (limestone of medium consistency) that covers the entire extension of the vineyard, its thickness is between 15 and 30 cm. and below there is a very sandy ground to which the roots extend. The altitude varies between 700 m. and the 850 m. above sea level. They are composed of small plots with a total of 32 hectares of the Monastrell variety, of very old vineyards and some almost centenarians, 12 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and 1.8 hectares of Syrah, planted in soft hills that look to the north.
