The Vicalanda Booking, a red wine created in 1994 that began a new style of reserve rioja, the maximum expression of the “terroir”. The Vicalanda Reserve is a wine pioneer “wines of high expression”, crafted from a selection of thes best grapes from our own vineyards.
The name of The Vicalanda comes in your home on a small farm of 10,5 hectares the property of Bodegas Bilbaínas.

DEVELOPMENT (VINIFICATION)

At the time of the harvest, we made a selection to carry only the winery those grapes with ripening conditions optimal. After de-stemming and crushing took place the maceration and the alcoholic fermentation of three weeks, at a temperature of 28 ºC.
The wine made the malolactic fermentation in barrels, where it is subsequently aged for 14 months. We use French Allier oak barrels, new in a minimum of 50%. At this time, the wine is trasegó several times to clean it and natural way to avoid post-treatments. The wine has an aging minimum in bottle 24 months (Reservation).

VINEYARD (VITICULTURE)

We select the best grapes of our plots Cuervo 4, Vicuana and Zaco, of the D. O. Ca. Rioja. These vineyards were planted with the traditional system of vine “cauldron” Rioja, they have an average age of more than 35 years and produce 2.500 kg per hectare. All the work done on these plots is done by hand, working with highly qualified staff. We get our grapes, with cultivation practices respectful with the environment, without the use of pesticides, insecticides and herbicides.
