The Winery : Bodegas Orvalaiz | On the Way to the Stars

The first stage takes place in the field, where the vineyards are closely monitored. When the grapes reach their optimum ripeness, they are brought to the facilities in Obanos, and subjected to strict tests that analyse pH, potential alcohol content, colour, health and acidity. The results, together with a thorough knowledge of each plot, allows the bodega to select the best-quality grapes of each variety.

Fermentation takes place with cutting-edge automatic overpumping systems in temperature-controlled, sloped-bottom stainless steel tanks, offering the best possible hygienic conditions.
