Baigorri Crianza 2015

Baigorri Crianza 2015

At Bodegas Baigorri, the force of gravity drives the vinification process in a winery that is as much a work of art as the wines it produces. Similar to the way a privileged environment combines with skilled techniques to produce great wines, the surrounding landscape has been combined with a unique approach to the elaboration process to produce a stunning winery in harmony with the land. Extending 32 meters into the earth, the winery uses the most rigorous methods: selecting grapes by hand, harnessing gravity and avoiding the use of hoppers, pumps or mechanical methods of any kind that might damage the grape or the wine.

Baigorri Crianza 2015

Region: Spain

Bodegas Baigorri returns winemaking to its origins in a state-of-the-art facility that is as much a work of art as the wines it creates. Built around the winemaking process, an elegant glass structure emerges from the soil and welcomes the visitor with a stunning display of the surrounding vineyards, emphasizing that it is here where the process begins.

Baigorri then dives more than 30 metres below the surface and relies on gravity to drive the fruit and must through its evolution towards world-class wine. The absence of hoppers, pumps or mechanical methods of any kind ensures that the individually selected grapes and the resulting wine are insulated from any potential damage. The result of this combination of careful vineyard management, rigorous selection and innovative architecture is a collection of well rounded, modern wines with a distinct personality.
