Bodegas Gómez de Segura
In the days before the harvest, samples are taken from the field to ascertain the state of the grapes and thus work out the best time to start hand-picking them.
Special mention goes to our young ‘carbonic maceration’ harvest wine, since the grapes are deposited into presses so that fermentation can take place to obtain fresher and fruitier wines.
The construction of Bodegas Gómez de Segura in 1948 laid the ground-base for our wine production today. Inside, you will see a vat with a depth of up to 7 metres and a constant temperature of 14˚C throughout the year, which provides optimal conservation of the wine.
We select our barrels very carefully to ensure they add sweetness and various aromas to the wine. Our wines rest until they reach the ideal tannic and aromatic content. We use new French and American oak barrels to guarantee that each wine’s ageing is unique and exclusive.
The inseparable companion of wine is cork, to preserve the properties of the wine and thus guarantee its evolution. All our corks are tested by an external laboratory to safeguard quality.
In 2009, Bodegas Gómez de Segura expanded by adding 15 stainless steel tanks (to the 10 already on site). This expansion enables us to combine today’s vanguard techniques with those of yesteryear in order to choose the most suitable production method for each wine.
