PostHeaderIcon Vegalfaro Winery, wine strain

The visit last Saturday, which I mentioned in the previous post was in Requena, had a second winery to go, just opposite the location of the former, and in the village of El Derramador, it is Vegalfaro Winery, a winery more modern, established in early 1980 and coming from a family that devoted their efforts to the farming world.

This family decided to convert their crops and winemakers from the crowd of studying the 'terroir' and seeking ways of producing high quality wines. This will seek the best parcels of their property and planted the best species, looking for the 'clonning' which best suit the environment and conditions of each of their lands. The concept of 'Vino de Pago' and 'Vino de Finca' was coined in the development of these by their owners.

Vegalfaro aims to develop the wine directly in the field, studying, controlling and improving all aspects of the physiology of the plant, so that gives the best grapes on the vine sensory capacity, it helps the process is solely to produce what the earth provides and prevents subsequent corrections fermented mash.

On our visit we attended Andrés Valiente, owner of the winery said we want quality wines and knowledge position at the top by merit. From the care of the plant to its harvest, the process is thorough, so that in passing into the hopper, we can say that wine is almost made. The cellar is well adapted to this philosophy, to reap the grain at its optimal time and produce a wine with controlled maceration and fermentation, to go to the cellar stored before bottling or for young wines and cava.

All in a perfect state of cleanliness and well-differentiated each process and place of the winery to produce wines and cava that today are achieving higher scores quota competitions and tastings where they occur.

The wines we could not taste in the warehouse, but kindly gave us a couple of bottles, Vegalfaro Crianza 2006 (Tempranillo, Merlot and Syrah) and Pasamonte Blanco 2008 (Chardonnay and 15% white Grenache), the latter belonging to the DO Valencia by the location of the property. Other wines as Pago de los Balagueses Merlot and Vegalfaro Cosecha 2009 had already tried it at home accompanied by friends and we were excellent, with a personality that reminded us of wines of high expression of northwest Spain.

Finally a very informative visit, though with little time, but more quietly and hope to repeat that this time with us Rodolfo, winemaker and son of the owner to go deeper into this philosophy of doing things and starting looking for Callide field .
