ARROCAL WINERY

Winery and vineyards

In the province of Burgos, there is a village called Gumiel de Mercado, a privileged place situated of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, since it has always been a town with a wine-growing tradition. Its structure is medieval and in the center of the town, there is a hill where our ancestors excavated the underground cellars to elaborate and preserve their wines.

VINEYARD

Our wines are made exclusively  from  our grapes,  the plots are located in said Burgos área, with an altitude of about 830m. and its soils combine limestone, sand, clay and gravel. We have a vineyard surface of 50 hectares, and the most widespread red variety is “Tinta fina” or “Tempranillo”, with approximately 45 hectares. Next to 2 has. of Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 ha. of Merlot and 2 has. of white variety,  Albillo”.

We bet for the respect to the land and the work of the grapevine of traditional form, continuing with the form of work that we learned of that first generation. The main objective is to follow a sustainable viticulture, a true reflection of quality wines.

WINERY

In 2003, the construction of our winery was completed. A space equipped with the latest technical advances, but above all was designed to respect our treasure to the maximum: our grapes.

All processing work is done by gravity, minimizing the damage to the raw material.

We have a cellar of 600 barrels of which 80% are French oak and the rest of American oak, where our wines grow the necessary time for the structure, without losing their identity.
