Hacienda Pradolagar is exclusively made with grapes from our oldest vines on “La Victoria”, a plot declared “Viñedo Singular” by the Ministry of Agriculture, thanks to the unique characteristics of the terroir; the dedication invested in the winemaking process, and the respect for traditional methods.
Wine making and Ageing
After a thorough and careful selection at the vineyard itself of the best Tempranillo and Mazuelo grapes, bunches enter the refrigeration chambers within minutes of manual picking in 12-kilogram boxes. There they stay overnight at a uniform temperature of 6-8oC before manual sorting the next day on the harvest table.
