Vineyard and elaboration
It is made in small plots located at different altitudes in Alfaro.
It is vatted in open plastic vats with whole grape bunches, foot trodden, with spontaneous fermentation with its own yeasts without temperature control. It is lightly pressed daily and macerated for 15 days.
After gentle pressing, the wine is transfered into used barrels. Here malolactic fermentation takes place. It remains for 7 months without any transfer. After natural clarification, it is bottled without stabilisation or filtering. It has a low sulphur content.
This winery was founded in the last century with the aim of following the family tradition of cultivating vineyards and making handcrafted wines. Although in the past they used to produce their wines in bulk, it was not until 1999 when they began to bottle their wines under the D.O. Valle de Güímar.
This winery is very clear about the importance of harvesting and maintaining its vineyards in order to obtain a quality product as a final result. Its vineyards are located in the highlands of the town of Arafo.
The ultimate goal is to combine efforts to satisfy and surprise their consumers year after year and keep their loyalty. Their work has been rewarded with numerous awards that confirm the evolution of the winery.
