D. O. BULLAS
There is a time-honoured wine-making tradition among the people of the D.O. Bullas territory, as evidenced by the many traditional wineries in both countryside and urban houses.
The vineyards are found within the Bullas Designation of Origin. A land with a time-honoured relationship with wine, with vestiges of wine production dating back more than 2,600 years.
Monastrell is the local variety that accounts for the majority of this designation. It has medium to large bunches, which are dense and compact due to its great blossom. Its clusters are conical and tight, with small, spherical berries.
The traditional practice of cultivating head-trained bush vines, above all rain-fed, facilitates one of our main objectives, to obtain fresh, natural organic grapes in small bunches, with optimal acidity and moderate alcohol content to give flavours typical of the soil and landscape of Caravaca de la Cruz. The grapes are picked and selected by hand and put into ten-kilo boxes. Then, they are taken from the vineyard to the winery as quickly as possible. All the vineyards are on the same estate.
After some brief clarification, it is bottled unfiltered for final ageing. The result is a wine with intense colour, fine, elegant aromas, fruity, tasty and fleshy on the palate.
Our wine production project endeavours to recover vine cultivation in Caravaca de la Cruz and produce quality wines using traditional methods. It came to life in 2015 with the birth of VIÑEDOS DE UTOPÍA.
A total of 15 hectares have been planted with Monastrell and Fine Grenache grape varieties, all rain-fed and trained as head-trained bush vines. The vines are young but worked traditionally and organically to achieve the highest quality in the final product, the grape.
The climate on the estate is mainly continental, softened by the influence of the Mediterranean, with long hours of sun and an average accumulated rainfall of 300-400 mm per year. The grapes are grown organically and naturally in these conditions, producing fresh fruit with moderate acidity and alcoholic content. It is a 100% organic product in harmony with the environment where it is grown.
