Established 1996

The wine making facilities were designed by consulting oenologist Pascal Delbeck, proprietor of Château Ausone, who still works with the estate along with Angel Anocíbar. The winery is conceived around a gravity flow system and features a laboratory and an aging cellar of 5,000-barrel capacity cut into the adjacent mountainside. The wines can be aged in the 80 stainless steel vats, or any combination of the 3,700 Bordeaux-type 225-litre barrels, which are 80% French oak, 20% American oak. Of the French oak, some are derived from Limousin forests, while others are cut from Allier trees. Humidity and temperature are maintained at optimum levels for the wines’ development.
