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.
Viña Pomal Crianza is made in the traditional way: after destemming and crushing it undergoes alcoholic ferm entation.
Total maceration lasts two weeks, seeking a structure of light, pleasant wines with a great deal of fruitiness. Twelve months in barrels of American oak (15% new) provide us with the complexity and maturity needed to round off this wine’s expression.
The Viña Pomal estate covers 90 hectares of vineyards.
These are located inside the municipality of Haro and less than 2 kilometres from the winery, in one of the town’s most beautiful enclaves,overlooking the Ebro River as it flows downstream through the shells de Haro pass. Our estate encompasses different ecosystems with different soils and varying degrees of exposure to the sun, which calls for the careful selection of homogenous zones. The estate combines traditional Rioja practices with precision winegrowing techniques, implementing state of the art environmentally friendly winegrowing,always with a view to obtaining premium quality. In addition to the work on our estate's vineyards we also carefully select grapes from our Rioja Alta suppliers.
