The vines, with an average age of 25 years, are grown in top class Rioja Alta vineyards with soils composed of clay and limestone. A typical Rioja climate is one of moderate rainfall and hot summers. The grapes were picked by hand between mid September to end October and the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks with the temperature controlled at 26 degrees. When fermentation is over, the wine is racked into barrels for 8 months. Selection of barrels is of particular importance in Rioja where oak is such a critical element in winemaking. For Gran Familia we chose to put 50% of the wine into American oak barrels and 50% into French. This results in the perfect balance of fruit and oak.
