Our Winery, I'ts For Sale, more information

The wine production.
  • The vineyards cover around 4 hectares with roughly 10.000 grapevines but we have a license for 12.000.
  • The grape distribution is roughly 42% Chardonnay, 16%  Syrah and 42% Tempranillo.
  • When the grapevines have reached their full potential after 7-10 years (average 4,5  years old mid-2017) the yield would be around 30000 – 35000 bottles a year. 
    • Potential turnover for us is based on what other wineries in the area sell Organic Natural made Red Wine for, around 7 Euro/Bottle. Handmade Chardonnay would be around 4-5 Euro/bottle. 
  • The grapes are hand-picked and only the best grapes will make it to the VAT´s.
  • The grapes are measured thoroughly for Sugar and acid levels.
  • Harvested when all values are as near as perfect as possible, no chemicals are needed for the red wine. Only small wineries like us are able to do that.
  • So - we produce Natural made red wine as it was made in the old days in the better wineries. Not even yeast is added as the grapes contain natural yeast.  

Almond, fig and olive plantations.  All can be Outsourced if you want.
  • The 1533 almond trees are a mix of (Marcona and Comuna; a mix of other varieties and resold as these two). They can produce around 5 ton of almonds in a good year.
  • The 138 fig trees produce around 200kg a year.
  • The 37 olive oil trees are basically for personal use only, but produce great tasting olive oil.

  • The farm is located on the south side of mighty Sierra Nevada (3482 meters) at 1050 meters above sea level that makes it possible to make quality wine as it's made in northern Spain. This is one of the last recognized wine regions in Spain; Vino de Granada.
