ANAYÓN, new Parcel wines: PARCELA 15 and PARCELA 81

17/01/2019 15:42

Marcelo Morales, Grandes Vinos winemaker, and Joey Tensley, recognised as the “leading winemaker of the California region of Santa Bárbara” by the prestigious magazine Wine Spectator, have come together for the project of our winery to select two extraordinary parcels of the Cariñena PDO, from the incredible diversity of our vineyards.
Each parcel was harvested  when the grapes were perfectly ripe, with maximum care, in the purest traditional style, carefully placing the grapes in boxes to ensure they arrived at the winery in perfect condition.
There was also an extraordinary vinification of each parcel, in open oak barrels and hand-pumped to maximise the essence of the terroir where the fruit was produced.
The process culminated with a stage in a French oak barrel for three months and two new wines: ANAYÓN PARCELA 15 and ANAYÓN PARCELA 81.

How to keep a wine open bottle

08/01/2019 17:24

1º Close the bottle with its cork. It must be ensured that the contact of the wine with the air is as minimal as possible.
2º Keep the bottle in the fridge.
3º The bottle is placed in a stand position, in this way the surface of wine that is in contact with the air is much smaller.
4th Once the bottle is empty, we will separate the bottle from the cork and recycle:
      - Wine glass bottles in the green containers
      - Natural cork in the organic waste container.
      - Silicone or plastic cap into the plastic box.
