Where is our winery?
We carry out an exhaustive control of our grapes
The grapes arrive from our vineyards to be received, pressed, and stored. The temperature and atmosphere are controlled automatically and always under an exhaustive control of the oenologist. In short, the product obtained from VALDECUEVAS is a high-end product.
The winery is located in the so-called golden triangle, in the municipality of Rueda. Within the estate itself, in the estate called La Pardina, a newly built building, equipped with modern and versatile production systems, which gives us great possibilities of producing an exceptional product.
Between the months of September and October, depending on the maturation of the harvest, the harvest begins at Bodega Valdecuevas. To achieve the excellent quality of the grapes, a strict control is carried out in the field, not only of the maturation but also of the yield, in order to achieve a limited production and obtain greater concentration in our grapes. The end result are powerful aromatic wines.
The winery blends perfectly the use of new technologies with the traditional know-how of the locals, who are the ones who are most familiar with the behavior of the Verdejo grape.
Small stainless steel tanks where cold skin maceration is carried out to achieve a greater extraction of aromas. Gentle pressing in which only the free-run must is used for fermentation at low temperature (15°C). Fermentation will last between 19-21 days depending on the evolution of the wine.
After fermentation, a key factor is the removal of the lees and daily batonnage of the fine lees to give the wine greater smoothness, as well as much more structure in the mouth.
