Finca Villacreces is a red wine, which bears the name of the estate and the winery, is a blend of Tempranillo (86%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Merlot (4%).
The grapes come from a selection of plots with low yields on a plot of 64ha located in Quintanilla de Onesimo, in the Golden Mile, a wine region famous for the quantity and quality of their wineries and wines.
The harvest is done entirely by hand in boxes of 15 kg during the second and third week of October. Once in the winery, a careful selection of clusters and grapes takes place.
For processing, after a complete stripping of the grape, a traditional fermentation takes place in stainless steel.
