VINEGROWING

Our essential work is realized in the vineyard. Through viticulture we try to obtain the most representative and high quality grapes in every parcel. Thus, it is in the vineyard where we make the greatest effort and a very accurate work, always developing a friendly viticulture with the crop and the environment around it.

During previous month before harvest, many grape samplings in every plot are realized to know the evolution in the ripening and be able to decide the right moment to pick grapes from every vineyard.

Harvest is made by hand and grapes are transported to the winery in 20 kg plastic crates in order to keep quality of the grapes. During picking, a selection of the right bunches is also made, leaving on the plant those don’t meet the criteria for the winemaking.

Once in winery, if it is necessary, we will do a second selection of the bunches in the sorting table. It is unusual to make this second selection because the good health of the grapes and the selection made in the vineyard.

WINEMAKING

Pujanza winemaking follows traditional process with an accurate control. Fermentation takes place in 15.000 L. stainless steel vats, excluding Pujanza Cisma and Añadas Frías. Pujanza Cisma is elaborated in a 1.700 kg. barrel box, an structure of stainless steel with faces made ofoak staves, and Añadas Frías is made and aged in two barrels of 225 and 500 L.

Our top is a thorough control of timing and temperatures in every tank, in order to preserve quality and personality obtained in the vineyard.

AGING

Every Pujanza wine is aged a minimum of 12 months in French Oak barrels from best forests. Although we have not a large number of barrels, we use casks from different coopers in order to add to our wines a higher complexity that goes along with character obtained in the vineyard.

As during winemaking, our best tool to control wine evolution in the barrels is tasting them often, to be able to take right decisions in perfect moments.
