The Winemakers

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 Wine

The Beso de Vino Macabeo (from low yield 35 to 40 yr old vines) is aged in stainless steel. It gives up aromas of mineral and citrus, particularly fresh lime. This is followed by an intense, savory, and balanced offering that will provide pleasure over the next 12-18 months. Grandes Vinos y Vinedos’ collection is replete with stunning values.
