The history of our Winery begins in 1956, when a group of small winemakers from the Lerín area, convinced of the potential of their vineyards, decided to join forces and create a project whose main aim was the marketing of quality wines.
Sharing their vineyards, working hand in hand and using techniques passed on from father to son since time immemorial,
these entrepreneurs together founded the Winery Bodegas Alconde. The Winery owns 510 hectares of vineyards in Navarre, located on privileged lands ideally suited for growing grapevines.
The vineyards are fortunate in having chalkyclay, pebbly soils, the right sun exposure for the grapes to ripen perfectly and a unique microclimate.
Constant attention to the vines and a meticulous selection process ensure the best grapes are available to make topquality wines that earn world-wide recognition year after year.
The various elements cover a total surface area of 8,500 square metres. The charm and understatement of the original winery combine well with the complexity of new structures equipped with cutting-edge technology. The wood-ageing hall holds 2,300 French and American oak casks.
These are replaced every three years so that they may continue to endow the wines with elegance and subtlety. The bottle-ageing area has a capacity of one million bottles, lying there in serene quietude until called for.
