Wine from the GRAPES to the GLASS
Design your own wine from the vineyard
With WineTuning you will be able to choose from amongst 115 hectares (284 acres) of different varieties of white grapes: Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc and red grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo, Syrah, Garnacha, Moristel and Parraleta with a wide variety of soils, locations, training systems, and you can set the pruning conditions, "green" operations, and irrigation so that you will be able to make almost any type of wine a la carte.

In order to produce a good wine it is necessary to start with good grapes. Everything that we do in the vineyard from the planting of the vine to the harvest of the fruit, years later will have an influence on the result and the final quality of the wine.
The first decision to be taken is where and how to plant the vineyard. Here the climate and the soil quality ground that we want, the amount of water, sun and nutrients that the vine is going to be able to obtain, will all be factors to be taken into account. The result will also vary depending on the density of the planting (the number of plants per hectare) and whether we decide for goblet vine-training, espalier training, or some other system. Moreover, the varieties of grape selected will be essential in defining the type of wine we obtain.
Once the vineyard has been established, a series of decisions need to be taken year after year that will affect, together with the year's weather, the final quality of the harvest. Factors such as the pruning, which depending on the type and the load (number of shoots that we leave on each vine stock) will determine the degree of humidity, the exposure to sunshine of the raceme, and the yield of the plot, all of which are intimately connected with the characteristics and quality of the grape.
From the moment the plant begins growing until the time of the harvest, we must control the vigour of the plant, the amount of grass in the vineyard and even the number of leaves per stock. This set of actions, known as "green" operations, affect the health of the grape and, consequently, its quality.
The last main factor, which is closely related to the specific weather of the year and the characteristics of the vineyard, is the irrigation, which modifies the capacity of the root to uptake water increasing the supply of water when necessary. On the other hand, there are other techniques that allow us to vary this availability in reverse, in other words to create a controlled level of drier conditions in specific cases. One of these techniques is by the vegetation cover, which consists in leaving grass in areas of the plot so that it competes with the vine for water.
Which type of grapes do you prefer to make your wine? Do you prefer a light, fruity wine or one that has been aged for a long time in barrels? What proportion of the different varieties do you want, or would you prefer a Garnacha varietal wine because you love this grape? Would you like to invite your friends to drink your own brand wine made by you yourself?
Or simply decide on the style of wine that you would like to obtain and our technical team will guide you through the whole process to obtain it.
Participate in the whole process as much as you choose, you can come to harvest your grapes, to prune them, to select them or to sample your future wine in the barrel where it is ageing.
