More info

The Finca Antigua vineyard is located at 900 metres above sea level, providing cool nights to temper the hot summer days. Soil is loamy, with a high limestone content giving extra definition to the wines. The vineyard is sub-divided into thirty plots, each planted to the most suitable variety. The Tempranillo comes from a parcel called Escalerillas, planted in 1990, and it was picked in the third week of September.

The must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with a sixteen-day maceration. The wine was aged for ten months in American oak barrels.

Finca Antigua

In 1998, Familia Martínez Bujanda decided to look for somewhere to build a new bodega. They settled on the best, highest-altitude area of La Mancha DO, and acquired a 1000 hectare estate, with 421 hectares under vine. Named after the old vines already growing there, Finca Antigua combines the latest technology and time-honoured winemaking traditions with stunning results.
