Our barrel cellar, where tailored ageing takes place
Our wines are a faithful reflection of the vineyard, the parcels and the grape varieties that they come from. In the barrel ageing we aim to respect the grape variety and terroir, allowing them to express themselves fully. Care for the raw material remains our key maxim, down to each and every detail.

Different types of oak
· French oak. From different forests in central France (Allier, Troncáis, Jupille, Blois…), it gives great aromatic complexity, with delicate notes of spice (clove, cinnamon), touches of menthol, smoke and cocoa. It adds a considerable amount of tannins, giving great structure on the palate.
· American oak. Sourced in Ohio and Missouri, from the Appalachian forests, it adds intense aromas of vanilla, coconut and aromatic plants.
· Russian oak. From the Caucasus and the Republic of Adygea. It is similar in aromas to French oak, although it is less pungent, respecting the primary aromas of the grape.
· Hungarian oak. It is very similar in aromas to French oak. In the case of Tempranillo it adds slightly more lactic notes.
. Pyrenean oak. It is high in polyphenols, adding vanilla, caramel, almond, clove and resinous notes. It is the latest type of oak to be added to our constantly evolving ageing process.
