The Winery

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.

Elaboration - Vinification

The grapes were very carefully destemmed in order not to crush the berries and they then underwent further selection.

The choice whole grapes were then deposited by hand in small open containers specially suited for this purpose. Fermentation and maceration took 28 days. 7 French oak barrels 7, medium roasted and unroasted. The barrel aging would last for 20 months.

Vineyard - Viticulture

The Tempranillo vine stock that surrounds the Alto de la Caseta was planted in goblets over 35 years ago on a south-east facing slope.

The Tempranillo vine stock that surrounds the Alto de la Caseta was planted in goblets over 35 years ago on a south-east facing slope. The soil on the estate is loose gravelly poor soil. In this ideal environment for vine stock and in order to bring greater complexity to the wine, we practise integrated sustainable viticulture at the hands of the estate’s most experienced people.
