Estate: Grandes Vinos y Viñedos is located in the heart of Cariñena, the vineyards are spread across 14 towns in the region at the bottom of the Algairén and Pecos mountain ranges. The estate is “committed to combining environmental protection with the best quality possible of wine production”. Environmental preservation methods as rainfall irrigation and solar energy have led them to become a leader in the region for environmental research and innovation.
Philosophy: The “wines are produced based on three fundamental aspects that form the essence of each one of them: the land, the climate and the variety”.
Winemaking: Garnacha grapes are from vines 5 years in age at 650 meters in elevation, Chardonnay from vines 25 years old at 450 meters.
Tasting Notes: Pale gold in colour with aromas of honeysuckle, pear and white pepper. Green apple, pear and orange blossom are accented by fresh citrus acidity, finishing dry and crisp. A refreshing, summery sip, great on its own and super versatile at the table. [Paired with homemade cannelli bean/quinoa/cheddar/jalapeño veggie burgers with guacamole.]
Pairing Suggestion from the Winery: Perfect pairing with vegetables, rice and pasta, also with seafood and Asian cuisine.
