All of the production is obtained from the Estate FINCA CAÑADA HONDA. The production area includes lime soils which are ideal for obtaining colorful wines. Also the sand textures of these lime soils benefit the ripening of the grapes. The vineyard is situated 800 – 850 meters above sea level with an N / SE orientation resulting in maximum sunlight exposure.
The main difference between a wine created with or without sulfites is the special attention that is paid in the vineyard as well as in the cellars to avoiding grape contamination. Sulfur is used in winemaking as the main antiseptic, preventing the grapes and wine from suffering the attacks of bacteria which could negatively affect or damage the wine completely. The wine making process without the use of sulfur means that the hygienic conditions have to be extreme during harvest season. The grapes are harvested solely by hand in small crates. Every effort is made to avoid breakage and bacteria attacks. The wine deposits are filled very briefly so as not to delay the delicate fermentation process. All elements that come in contact with this no sulfite added wine are subject to the most extreme hygienic conditions.
Mix of sandy and clay soils, with the presence of stones.
