RESOLUTELY EMBARKING ON THE PATH

Avoiding fleeting fashions and fads

 

This approach allows us to rediscover and uphold traditions that are deeply rooted in the wine culture. Proof of this is the cooperage that supplies barrels for the winery. All the American wood barrels are built there and it is the workshop to repair the French wood ones, which arrive already assembled from France.


The Único Reserva Especial is the tribute to a tradition that has already fallen out of use in Spanish wineries. Previously, all the wineries had a special wine, without a vintage, which was produced by means of the assemblage of different harvests. This practice fell into disuse as the market found it hard to grasp such a wine given the great importance of the vintage on the wine market.


Another example of the clear commitment to express the truth about our actions is the paradox of the age of the vines. It now seems that everyone has old vines without which it seems impossible to make wine. At TEMPOS Vega Sicilia the average age of the vine in production is approximately 35 years old. Grapes obtained from plants less than 10 years old are not used to make wines, and once the vines are sufficiently old, the plants are replaced to continue to ensure an ideal quality.
