Winemaking

The grapes for Imperial Gran Reserva come from our best and oldest vineyards around Villalba, Briones and Torremontalbo, and which are over 40 years old. Rigorous work in the vineyard followed by hand harvesting into 20kg boxes with exhaustive selection in the field ensured the collection of great quality grapes. Once in the winery, the grapes were held in a refrigerated chamber for 24 hours and then subjected to a second manual selection on a selection table. To ensure gentle handling


Ageing

The wine is then aged for a minimum of 24 months in new French and American oak barrels, with racking every 8 months. Finally, the bottles are aged for a minimum of 36 months in our hundred-year-old cellars before finally being released onto the market.
