Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Castaño Colección Cepas Viejas is a red wine from the D.O. Yecla produced by the Castaño winery. This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties, Monastrell (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%).

The region is home to a Mediterranean Continental climate, characterised by dry summers and cold winters where snowfall may appear. The grapes used to make this wine come from vineyards located 750 metres above sea level, with the Monastrell grapes cultivated by short pruning, while the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grow on trellises. Both the Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties are grow on old vines, at around 50 and 30 years respectively.

After the harvest has been carried out, Castaño Colección Cepas Viejas undergoes alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature between 26º and 28ºC. Following this, malolactic fermentation takes place. Castaño Colección Cepas Viejas then finally ages for 10 months in oak barrels. This wine is bottled and placed onto the market without being stabilised.

The Castaño winery is home to over 500 metres of vineyards spread across four different ploys: Las Gruesas, Pozuelo, Arabi and El Espinal. The winery was founded by Ramón Castaño Santa and is now led by his three children, who joined the project back in the 80s.

The firmness, will and strength of Ramón Castaño, and his determination to reach maximum quality levels in wines made with the Monastrell variety are his best credentials. The innovative philosophy of the Castaño, improvements in both the winery and the vineyard, as well as the implementation of environmental management systems with organic and integrated agriculture, and the improvement of technical means in the different stages of production, are signs that have been happening harvest after harvest.
Pictures and situation Castaño
The DO. Yecla is currently submerged in the midst of a revolution, led by small private wineries and cooperatives that are fully grasping the cultivation of vineyards and the use of new technologies, working with the star trademark grape: the Monastrell. Over recent years, the region has been producing high quality red wines that have not only built a strong reputation, but are also leading the way for a great future. D.O Yecla is without a doubt one of the most dynamic Denominaciónes de Origen. The region also boasts a strong export market, with 95% of its products sold outside of Spain, with their wines enjoyed by over 40 countries throughout the world.
