They are monitored by means of soil probes for the current values ​​of water, nitrogen, phosphorus and magnesium. In the event of any shortage, this can be precisely addressed. The harvest takes place at the beginning of October, when the grapes have reached their full maturity. The fermentation takes place in large stainless steel tanks. Only the two wines "Arrocal" (4 months in American oak barrels) and "Arrocal Selección" (14 months in new French oak barrels) are pressed. Every year 90,000 bottles of wine are produced, of which 70% are exported.
