The Ribera del Duero finally comes the long-awaited moment after a year of hard work: the Harvest

After having decided after a selection of vineyards which is going to begin, we began to collect the bunches of Tempranillo from the old vineyards, from 60 to 90 years old, everything is picked by hand in boxes of 15 Kg

The grapes are hand selected for quality on a selecting table .We throw away any that are not up to the required

The grapes pass through a de-stemmer and return to the selecting table where they are again checked on a vibrating table for quality

The harvest of the younger vines is also done manually in trailer which holds up to 2200 kilos. The grapes are taken to the winery within an hour of being picked.

The harvest of the younger vines is also done manually in trailer which holds up to 2200 kilos. The grapes are taken to the winery within an hour of being picked.
When the grapes reach the bodega they are gently and slowly put through the hopper. The grapes are passed into a de-stemmer where the grapes are removed from the bunch and finally they are pumped into the tanks.

The wine is held in 22,500 litre tanks until is has undergone the alcoholic fermentation process and is left a few days to macerate. After running off the wine it then undergoes malolactic fermentation and is passed into barrels for a length of time depending on which type of wine it is destined to become.

The barrel room is one of the restored areas, maintaining the original arch of stone and the walls. Perfectly equiped for keep the temperature and humidity constant all the year.

The ageing is done in oak barrels , 50% american and 50% of french.
