The soils from which La Vicalanda reserve is born from are calcareous and stony. The fields are low yielding but high in quality.
The vineyards are planted using sustainable agricultures practices.
At the moment of harvest, the grapes have reached an optimum stage of ripening and are then destemmed and pressed. La Vicalanda Reserva is macerated for 3 weeks at a temperature of 28ºC.
The wine is subsequently fermented (alcohol and malolactic) after which the must is racked to purify the lees and then enters the barrel.
La Vicalanda Reserva rests for 14 months in new Bordeaux oak French barrels from Allier. During the ageing process the wine is racked 3 times.
La Vicalanda Reserva, before being sold, the wine is aged for an additional 24 months in the bottle.

La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
The century-old Bodegas Bilbaínas were born with a French heart and were established with a Riojan spirit. Bodegas Bilbaínas is the oldest bottling firm in La Rioja. It is the winery with the largest surface area of underground caves ("calados") in the whole region (3,400 m2). It also has the most extensive area of vineyards in the municipality of Haro. Since the beginning, the winery has been defined by its deep knowledge of the territory and the care in the production of its single-vineyard wines. These are extremely identified with the plots where they came from, hence their names: in 1911 Viña Pomal was created; in 1921, Viña Zaco; in 1923, the white wine Viña Paceta; and the range was extended in 1994 with La Vicalanda reserva, a distinguished and expressive wine that was born from the 9-hectare farm, selected in the vineyard area of Viña Pomal.
