Bodegas Domeco de Jarauta Solar de Castro (750ml)
In 1995 José Vicente Domeco de Jarauta built a modern winery in La Rioja and in 2005 his son Jose Vicente Domeco de Jarauta joined him in the business upon returning from his enological studies at San Sadurni D’Anoia (Penedés). The family respects tradition, quality and innovation.
Every year we made a harvesting calendar which selects the terrains according to their optimum ripeness. The picking of the grapes is done manually and before being unloaded they go through a quality control as well as several analysis of our grape juice, this makes that year after year the wines continue to keep this great feature of quality and trust.

Stainless steel tanks and temperature controlled fermentation at 28 º C for a period of 15 to 20 days. Winemaking methodology varies depending on variety and vineyard origin.
