Cerro San Cristobal Winery comes from the hands of three friends, all with extensive experience in the world of wine: Jose Luis Becerra, Jose Antonio Moral and Juan Leopoldo Rodriguez.
The location was not an easy decision. Beginning in 2000, this group did not stop searching for the right place to make wine-making unique and special.
In 2006, they had a fortuitous opportunity to execute the vinification of young vines planted on one of the slopes of Cerro San Cristóbal. This is in the Natural Park of Aracena And Picos de Aroche, located in Almonaster la Real.
It is an area without appellation of origin or wine tradition, however it is ideal for a great ride in the World of microelaborations. Our original wine with unique organolective quealities is the result of vines planted on Sandy, poor and rocky soils anda n environment not disturbed by the rich biological diversity.
To summarize, our intention is to make the best red wine in Huelva.
We believe that to achieve this goal we need to move away from the tradicional standards of the area by how we work the vineyard, our concept of making wine and becoming the Only winery that produces red wine in this environment. We encourage the vines to coexist with other species of native plants, which prevents erosion because the soil is enriched, therfore, we achieve our goals.
The enology of Cerro San Cristóbal Winery has the rationale of obtaining the best possible expresion of our vines. Fruit, minerality, acidity and liveliness are preserved and enhanced by daily enological practice at the winery.
We think that there are no fixed rules in wine-making and each Harvest should begin again: a new climate, a new grape, a new human factor which requires the continuous search for balance.
La Porrejona extends over 60 hectares inside Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park . The altitude of the land ranges between 725 and 915 meters. The land is slopped with Sandy, poor and rocky soil with the presence of crags.
Two climates are present in this terrain, one influenced by the proximity of the sea and the other from the inland climate. Winters are cold and Summers are mild, with contrasting temperatures between day and night.
We practice a low intervention viticulture in an effort to preservate the biodiversity of the land. Each strain has been cultivated without irrigation systems, intensifying the concentration of aromas and flavors. The vineyard yields a low amount of grapes, with thick skin, which produces a small crop with an intense flavor.
The winery produces red and white wine with strong personality. To mantain maximun quality, we understand the necessity of sacrificing grapes every year to offer the highest quality.
Our wines exude elegance with finesse as opposed to power. We Strive to achieve an elegant tannic wine, the importance or harvesting in the optimum moment of maturation. We promote a soft flavor by removing the right skins. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and each variety is treated with different protocols and controls.
Aging takes place in select French and American oak barrels made in the highest quality cooperages, wich reduces a powerful wood presence.
