Grandes Vinos y Viñedos S.A. was founded in 1997 and focus on quality, innovation and commitment to the surroundings and the environment and striving for modern, new working systems and better control of all the processes right from the vine stock, creating unique wines with a great character, typical of the region. The Winery and its vineyards are geographically located in the heart of the Cariñena Denominación de Origen, Appellation of Origin, one of Spain’s most traditional wine-producing regions.
The wines are produced based on three fundamental aspects that form the essence of each wine: the land, the climate and the variety. The average age of the vineyard is over 40 years old, with yields of less than 6,000 kgs. per hectare. (2.75 tons/acre)
The 2009 Beso de Vino Seleccion is a blend of 85% Syrah (15 yr old vines) and 15% Garnacha (40 yr old vines) aged for 3 months in French oak. Black cherry and blueberry aromas lead to a dense, plush, savory wine which finishes with no hard edges. It is shockingly good for the money. Grandes Vinos y Vinedos’ collection is replete with stunning values.

By the way, the three holes you will see on the top of the screwcap are not from Antonio´s horns!
