Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Santa is a red wine from the D.O Yecla produced by the Castaño winery. This win is a blend of two different grape varieties: Monastrell (90%) and Garnacha Tintorera (10%).
 

The grapes used for this wine come from vines that are over 45 years old, which grow at 750 metres above sea level, with a south facing orientation, on stony and sandy soils on a limestone base. The vines are cultivated with short pruning on bush vines. Yield is around 1,500-2,000 kilos of grapes per hectare, with the density of the plantation around 1,600 vines again per hectare.
 

After the harvest has been carried out, the grapes undergo fermention for 16 days at controlled temperatures of 26º-28ºC. The must then undergoes a phase of malolactic fermentation. Santa is then aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels.

Santa is without a doubt one of the most renowned wines from the D.O. Yecla. Smooth, elegant, fine, it is simply unforgettable.

The Castaño winery, founded in 1950, was one of the first wineries in the region to buck the trend of bulk wine and begin bottling their wines. The success of their initiative is evident, with 90% of their production exported and sold outside of Spain.

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.

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.
