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)
Beso de Vino’s red wines begin with the 2009 Beso de Vino Garnacha V.V. (old vines) which spend 4 months in French oak. It displays super fragrant aromas of black cherry, red licorice, and lavender leading to a dense, layered wine that over-delivers big-time for its humble price. Enjoy it over the next 3 years. Grandes Vinos y Vinedos’ collection is replete with stunning values”.
