A VINEYARD, A VARIETY, A WINERY, A WINE…
San Vicente de la Sonsierra is nestled in this privileged corner in the heart of the Rioja region, where the river Ebro and the Sierra de Cantabria go hand in hand and contribute to improving the qualities of the fruits of the land.
A town which, for many years, has known how to make the most of its excellent climatic and geomorphic conditions to adapt to the times and make the production of Great Wines its fundamental economic activity.
On the one hand, its Mediterranean climate continentalized by mild winters and gentle summers; and on the other the privileged and well looked after calcareous-clay earth, make
Moreover, SEÑORIO DE SAN VICENTE always offers a great wine by selecting exclusively the tempranillo peludo grape variety. A decision which gives priority to quality over profitability and, together with the grape harvest carried out by hand in our vineyards, has made our wines a model of wine production.
In this way, by wisely combining the cultural knowledge passed down from father to sons with the new techniques that contribute to improving the quality of the end product, wine is made from a selection of grape varieties. The wine is tasted throughout the process to analyse its composition and make the right decisions to give this wine its own personal seal. And so, by putting every care and affection into daily work, San Vicente wine is born. This is a wine which offers us a different personality and in which one can appreciate, of course, the hand of man and the secrets of a family, which has been dedicated to this task for many decades.
Underground, in the best natural temperature and humidity conditions, SAN VICENTE wine will sleep in a selection of 225 litre French and American new oak barrels.
During this time, the wine will develop its primary qualities and will acquire the colour and bouquet, which are characteristic of a wine that strives to obtain excellence.
Once aged and having acquired its texture, the wine is transferred to the bottle where it will reach its full potential, rounding off its attributes and highlighting its quality. But, before seeing light, the wine has to be dressed to make its debut in society.
Then, when the cork is removed, we will taste the land, the climate, the sierra, the river, …and, of course, the flavour of experience; that good work which improves over the years, a tradition which is well worth maintaining.
