The magic of these wines comes from the hand of Maria Jover, a 28-year-old winemaker that has transferred her modern view in wine making to our wines. The organic Monastrell grapes come from very old vines (20-40 years old), organic, maintained from the old system of “Terraje”.
Since the beginning of its creation, the driving force of this winery is to be able to maintain the old system of the “Terraje” that consist on renting the vineyard to the farmers: they take care of the good quality of the vines and gives back a 7% of the production to the land owner. Almost all 80-90-year-old vines in Jumilla are maintained that way, but unfortunately, nowadays the owners of the land want to change the system to a more productive irrigated vineyard. The goal of the cellar is to maintain the old vines of the “Terraje” system by paying the grapes a higher price, and therefore maintaining the higher quality those old vines yield.
