Vineyard and elaboration
The winemaking process is based on a manually harvested grapes. Vinification is carried out in concrete tanks with skin maceration, leaving the grape juice in contact with the skins to try to show the full potential of the Serrano grapes in the wine. Regarding the vineyards, there is an assortment of red varieties whose blending is already done in the vineyard, as tradition has it. The most relevant variety in this region is known as Piñuelo, a variety of Garnacha, which adapts very well to the soils of Sierra after a long evolution process.
The vineyards in Sierra are cultivated on slopes and terraces, forming a very peculiar landscape, taking up space in the hills, like a Roman amphitheatre. Historic vineyards that produce pure, fresh, fragrant, vertical mountain wines, where the vines are still grown with absolute respect for the environment.
Small plots, old vineyards, knowledge and respect for the winegrower, simplicity and minimum intervention, a reflection of the character of the people. The vineyard also includes olive trees and fruit trees from small plots such as oak, chestnut, rockrose, heather and figwort, which add their character to the final result, a Serrano wine with a strong personality.
The grapes are treated in the winery by Jesús Recuero with the same respect, simplicity, sustainability and minimal intervention, with the idea that the Sierra de Gata will once again regain the prestige that its wines had 'antier' (the day before yesterday) and 'trasantier' (two days before yesterday).
