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