In Bodegas Piqueras we bring passion to our winemaking. But we also take quality very seriously at every step of the winemaking process, and so we keep a close eye on everything. We have grown a lot in recent decades, but we pay the same attention to detail that we always have, without losing sight of the mystique of winemaking that it takes a good winemaker to understand.
We believe that a good wine is born in the vineyard, which is why we carry out meticulous plant selection, careful pruning, monitoring of vine health and overall quality control.
We have state of the art equipment and technology to help with grape picking, pressing, filtration, bottling and labelling, but to really listen to the wine, to sense its development, to create the perfect blend from each vintage, you can’t rely on automated procedures. We have to be right there on the spot, alert in body and mind, to choose the precise moment to harvest the grapes and make the wine, and to achieve this requires patience, being there, knowledge and a whole lot of passion.
You have to be humble in the face of nature and the factors that are beyond our control season after season. We aim high, but we never want to lose sight of where we come from and the lessons of those who came before us. Their spirit guides us to be true to the time-honoured ways of doing things, while at the same time incorporating new techniques and responding to the shifting tastes and trends of the younger generation and the market.
