Arrocal

The winery "Bodegas Arrocal" is located in Gumiel de Mercado (near Burgos) in the DO area Ribera del Duero in the Spanish region Castile and Leon, It was founded in 2002 by Rosa María Arroyo Calvo and Moisés Calvo. The functional bodega is built on the principle of gravity in order to use as few pumping operations as possible and to guarantee a gentle processing. The vineyards cover 17 hectares of vineyards. They are monitored using soil probes for the current values of water, nitrogen, phosphorus and magnesium. In the event of any deficiency situations, this can be used to react precisely. The harvest takes place at the beginning of October when the grapes are fully ripe. The fermentation takes place in large stainless steel tanks. Only the two wines "Arrocal" (4 months in American barriques) and "Arrocal Selección" (14 months in new French barriques) are pressed. 90,000 bottles of wine are produced annually, 70% of which are exported.
