BODEGAS
SAN VALERO

The company has a technical team which includes viticultural and winemaking experts who closely monitor the growth of the vines, from the pruning season to the maturation of the grape, thus determining the optimum time for the grape harvest and the final destination of each parcel of grapes once they are picked.

The bodega’s winemaking facility was modernised starting in 1999, with a five-year investment plan totalling 8 million Euros (US$10m). As a result, the bodega now has a state-of-the-art winery with 12,000 small oak barrels and an annual production of 1.5 million cases. The two bottling lines each have a capacity of 12,000 bottles per hour and there is also a bag-in-box line. The bottling facility is certified to the IFS, BRC and ISO 9001 standards.
