Characteristics of Viña Pomal Crianza
Viña Pomal Crianza is a red wine from Rioja made by the Bilbaínas Bodegas, a winery that was founded in 1901, thanks to a group of Bilbao businessmen. Don Santiago de Ugarte was the co-founder and first managing director of Bodegas Bilbaínas.
The climate in this area is moderately continental with a very subtle Cantabrian influence as the Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural barrier against the cold north winds. This wine is a varietal Tempranillo (100%) from 90 hectares of vineyards located in the town of Haro. The vineyards are planted between 380 and 500 metres above sea level. As for the process, Viña Pomal Crianza is made with a traditional winemaking process. After de-stemming and crushing, alcoholic fermentation is carried out. Subsequently, maceration is performed for two weeks. Finally, this wine spends 12 months in American oak barrels and a minimum of 6 months in the bottle.
The nose is intense, dominated by floral and fruity aromas (black fruit) with notes of liquorice, vanilla and toasted flavours.

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.
