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

Selecting our best organic grapes, Monastrell and Merlot are vinificated separately in a traditional way to extract a typical quality from each. The Merlot lends aromas of pepper, black fruits and truffle while Monastrell lends the quality of our Mediterranean climate, making the wine very soft and fruity at the same time. The third variety that forms this special wine is Alicante Bouschet also called Garnacha Tintorera. To gain maximum fruitiness of the grape we have harvested very early and selected special yeasts that will support its fruity character. The skins and the pips are macerated at a very low temperature for a short time so that excessive tannins do not appear. The result is a red wine of a beautiful ruby colour with intensive fruit aromas and very ripe soft tannins.
