From the Jumilla region in central Spain from grapes grown in certified organic vineyards. The harvest is done by hand at the optimum ripening time.
The D.O.P. Jumilla is located in the southeast of Spain, and is characterised by its large high-elevation plains and valleys.
The climate of the region is sunny and arid, with little rain, no more than 300 litres per square metre per year. The average annual temperature is around 16 degrees. Winters are cold, dropping below zero degrees. Summers are hot, with temperatures often exceeding 40 degrees.
Soils in the area are very chalky, and generally have a great hydric capacity and a medium permeability, allowing the vineyards to survive in prolonged drought conditions. The Finca Bacara vineyards are certified Organic and situated at 900 metres above sea level.
The wines are linked to the land, and to the commitment of developing them with minimum impact on the natural environment. Each wine tells a story, and seeks to transmit the intensity and flavour of the local grapes.
