OUR HISTORY

Bodegas César Velasco, located in Villarrobledo (Albacete), belongs to the third generation of a family who, over a century, has made a unique wine; raised and pampered in centuries-old clay jars manufactured in this town by 19 different potters.

What distinguishes us, identifies us, and makes us more sustainable is the use of natural materials in the process of making and aging our wines. The use of these porous clay jars contributes to the clarification and refining of the wines in a natural way.

"Be temperate in drinking, considering that too much wine does not keep secrets, nor does it keep a word"

Cap.XLIII parte 2ª de El ingenioso hidalgo D, Quijote de la Mancha.

This artisan seal, besides being recognized for its elaboration in exclusive clay jars, respects and preserves the natural resources to achieve the minimum environmental impact in our elaborations.

An added value of our winery is the eco-prowine label; obtained thanks to the effort of having adopted measures such as the reduction in energy consumption, additives and adjuvants, waste pollution, and emissions to raise awareness and convey to our customers the consumption of a more respectful product.

This variety of wine, more widespread in cold countries, has been cultivated on our estate for more than 20 years. It is a pale yellow wine, with intense aromas of white flowers, melon, tropical fruits, lime, and herbaceous, as well as balanced, unctuous, fresh, and of great persistence.

From 60-year-old vines comes this exclusive wine of an intense cherry red color with aromas of red fruits, black currant, blackberry, prune, and warm with great structure. It is subjected to a controlled fermentation with its native yeasts for 10 days and malolactic fermentation in a 4,000-liter clay jar.

This limited-production red wine offers us the integral characteristics of the Merlot variety; made with a slow alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts; its malolactic fermentation and conservation take place in clay jars until bottling. Intense ruby ​​red with violet hues, aromas of red fruits, cherry, raspberry, and sweet pepper.

Our sustainable grape seed

Everyone who participates in this way of life is very aware of the responsible use of energy and water; we work in the fields:

  • Specifically in our vineyards; we apply responsible work and treatments; we have eliminated the use of herbicides, and the use of insecticides is insignificant.
  • In the winery, we have significantly reduced the weight of glass in the bottles, and we use recycled cardboard and corks from the cork trees.
  • In the use of oenological products, we are very aware of two premises: on one hand, moderation in their use, and on the other hand, maintaining our philosophy of making young wines in the most natural possible way. Besides, the addition of allergens is much lower than the legal limits established, so in practice, we would be talking about eco wines.
