Baron De Escal

Wine elaborated from vines between 15 and 40 years old. Their soils are poor, covered in pebbles and with hard layers. In short, it is an ideal soil for a high quality vineyard and low production.

After a selection of grapes at the vineyards and in the winery, they are crushed and macerated on their own skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (28 ºC – 30 ºC). Its fermentation was made in separate tanks following some methods as Delestage, in order to keep the grapes fruity notes.

Rioja is the most famous wine region in Spain and covers a stretch of land 60 miles long and 25 miles wide. Rioja was awarded DO status in 1925, making it the first in the country to receive this. In 1991, it was upgraded to the highest status, DOCa. Again it was the first designation in Spain to obtain it, due to its proven record in consistently producing top-quality wines. The confluence of the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean's influences teamed with the mountain formations create a favorable environment for vines. It is these friendly grape-growing conditions, with varied soil types and complex topography, which set Rioja apart from other Spanish wine regions. 85% of the region's wines are red and based on Tempranillo. Garnacha is used widely for blends and in Rioja’s rosé wines. Rioja also produces quality white wines based on Viura (or Macabeo).
