Viña Mambrilla, S.L.

The elaboration of the wines is made under the strictest controls, both fermentation with controlled temperature and conservation.

The winery has modern stainless steel tanks and the application of the most modern systems of filtration and cold stabilization, which give their wines a level of very high quality and prestige.

Perhaps most difficult of making in a great wine is their aging, so we have to carefully select the oak barrels in which wine rests for a long time.
