Our philosophy is based on the utmost respect and minimal intervention in the winemaking process. Therefore, we let nature follow its course at every stage, accompanying our wines every step of the way.
Winemakers Jean-François Hébrard and Óscar Rodríguez form an essential partnership to bring together our two philosophies of “know-how” and “laissez-faire” as our way of understanding viticulture and oenology.
In keeping with our philosophy our old vines, spread between more than 50 growing areas, are vinified according to their classification in small tanks. In this way we can maintain the personality of each area and produce wines of three classifications: Vino de Pueblo (village wines), Vino de Paraje (wines of the same viticultural area) and Vino de Parcela (single-plot wines).
A set of buildings designed by our beloved Esther Regidor, whose knowledge of how the land combines with architecture and the wine process, made this traditional but modern design possible. The building combines functionality, efficiency, a bioclimatic interior, and the beauty of construction.
Designed and situated in a natural way, the building provides optimal production conditions: naturally controlled temperature, ventilation and humidity as well as vinification using gravity. The aging rooms are located beneath the ground with “zarceras” (ventilation holes) just like the old 12th century cellars of La Horra.
It all combines in harmony to facilitate both work and customer visits.
