Founded in 1901 in the town of Haro’s legendary Station Quarter, Bodegas Bilbaínas is the longest-standing bottling winery in Rioja. It also has the most extensive underground cellars in the region and a greater area of vineyards than any other winery in the town: 250 hectares of high quality vines, which supply the winery with its own grapes, ensuring that they can be processed quickly without losing their qualities. Viña Pomal is its flagship brand, which embodies the Rioja Alta's best winemaking tradition. These are exceptional wines that have remained faithful to the classic style of authentic Rioja from the outset.
The moment of harvest is of critical importance and will determine the balance between fruit and acidity.
The moment of harvest is of critical importance and will determine the balance between fruit and acidity. The harvest is carried out carefully, by hand, with the grapes being gently pressed upon their arrival at the winery. We aim to extract as little colour as possible. Grapes only arrive at the winery in the morning, in order to benefit from the coolest hours of the day. The base wine is obtained after fermenting at 16 ºC. Then racking takes place, and following the standard procedures of the traditional method, the wines are aged on their lees in the bottle that they will be sold in.
