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

Wine elaborated from the particular grape variety Merseguera. Once the hand-harvesting has been carried out, a de-stemming and soft crushing process is applied. The grape juice is macerated with its skins at 8ºC for hours.
Part of the grape juice is fermented in deposits at 14ºC on thin lees, whereas the other part is fermented in new French oak barrels, followed by a slight aging on the lees with a twice a week battonage technique to keep the fine bouquets and to get a very balanced and harmonious wine.
