Vineyard and elaboration
The grape variety comes from 33 vineyard plots, operated by 11 winegrowers. Each one shows different variability of soils and winds, ranging from gravelly soils to rocky and poor ones, as well as the location of the vineyards, between 440 and 710 metres above sea level.
Harvesting is done manually and the grapes are transported in boxes to the winery.
As for the winemaking process, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts and malolactic fermentation.
The wine ages for 12 months in different sized French oak barrels and after bottling, the wine is kept in the winery for two years to settle and mature.
La Granja de Remelluri Winery
Located in one of the oldest vine-growing estates in our country, these wineries can be found in what used to be the sanctuary of Toloño in Labastida, where decades ago the monks cultivated cereals and vineyards.
It was in 1967 when Jaime Rodríguez and Amaya Hernandorena purchased some of these lands, and years later Telmo Rodríguez took control of them. This meant the reincorporation of the biodynamic practices of past centuries and with them, the recovery of the authentic Remelluri identity.
La Granja de Remelluri has 154 hectares of which 80 are vineyards. The vineyard comprises 200 plots of an average of 0.6 hectares each. Holm oak forests are close to the first vineyards, which favours a gentle and late ripening of the grapes.
