The main philosophy of Casas del Bosque is to produce quality wine using the most updated technology while preserving the traditions of the past.

Casas del Bosque utilizes only certificated water carried through a modern dripping irrigation system to hydrate each plant individually.

The grapes are hand-harvested, selecting only the best bunches on a selection table. Then, a second careful selection is made on a vibrating table that allows for the detection of problem grapes, leaves, and pieces of stalk.

All the tanks are made of Italian stainless steel and the barrels are made of fine grain French oak, selected according to our wines’ distinctive qualities.

We have two horizontal presses with the capacity of 8,000 and 15,000 kilos. They are used to process our white varieties. For red wine varieties, we use a vertical press which can take on varying degrees of low pressures, allowing for gentle pressing.

To assure low temperatures during white wine fermentations, cooling equipment is used, which can produce hot water at the same time it is used to cool down, which allows for a more efficient use of energy. Currently, Casas del Bosque has a cooling capacity of 400,000 kilo-calories.

The entire reception process, from the grapes’ entry to the press until their arrival in the tanks, has been carefully designed to prevent unnecessary interaction with the grape, thus allowing a natural process to produce the highest quality wines.
