Tour & 2 Wines

We normally attend the visits individually, not in groups. The visit starts at our small experimental vineyard, and continues through the different steps of the winemaking process (sorting table, fermentation tanks, press, etc.) and aging rooms. It ends with a tasting of our wines.

The price per person is :

20 Euros, with a tasting of 2 wines

25 Euros, tasting three of our wines, including Reserva and Gran Reserva.

The winery is small and the visit does not take long, but normally the tasting and talks take a bit longer; we could say just over one hour.

About The Wines

All the grapes are hand picked and transported in small cases so that they arrive to the winery in the best conditions. Once there, all the bunches are checked again in the sorting table.

Once the grapes are de-stalked, they are sent to the fermentation vats through a peristaltic system. The alcoholic fermentation will start naturally by the action of the yeasts from the grape skins and will take around three weeks at a controlled temperature. The grape skins are left in contact with the wine for the whole of this period to maximize colour and aromas, with frequent remontages (pumping over) and bazuqueos (pushing the “cap” or solid parts down into the wine to increase flavour and colour).
Then the wine is racked into barrels and taken to the malolactic fermentation room, which we maintain at 19ºC. so that this second fermentation will start spontaneously. Batonages, where the wine is gently moved, will take place every day while the malolactic fermentation continues. Once this second fermentation is completed, the wine —already clarified— will be aged in American and French oak barrels. The maturation in oak will last as long as each vintage requires, usually between ten and twenty-five months, depending also on the style we follow for each brand.

The wine will then be bottled and left to rest and develop for at least two years in the nearly 40,000 bottles that we fill every year.
