Additional information

Bodegas Pinoso

Bodegas Pinoso was set up as a cooperative in 1932 and the work carried out in the vineyards faithfully respects the wining traditions of our wine producers.

The coming together and effort put in by the founding members of Bodegas Pinoso meant that the winery quickly became renowned for the quality of its wines. This is why, in the years that followed, many other wine producers wanted to join the cooperative and initially in 1969 and later on in 1974, the winery was extended so as to make room for the new producers. After quite a lot more expansion at the beginning of the 80’s, the winery was capable of producing up to approximately 19,000.000 litres. It thus became the most important winery cooperative in the province of Alicante with 650 members. At the end of the 90’s the winery began to rethink its quality policy so as to improve its bottled wines while at the same time designating the first areas of the winery land to be used for certified ecological vineyard plots.

Production

Young wine made from the Monastrell variety and manually harvested at the optimum moment of maturity. The fermentation-maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks with a fermentation temperature of 20-24ºC to extract the maximum color from the skins and a large amount of varietal aroma, with a maceration that ranges between 5 and 10 days.
