—THE WINERY

Mountain vines, a cave, and a dream: come back tradition. We don’t want rules; we believe in our land, our grapes, and our senses.
We are Bodegas Frontonio.

Our winery is a 200-year old house with an underground cave (3 floors) where we can leverage the effects of gravity to process the grapes as gently as possible, as well as benefitting from the naturally cool environment with the perfect level of humidity for ageing our wines. After extensive renovations, the cellar can now process 70,000kg of grapes, and age almost 50,000l, with a great variety of vessels including concrete, large oak foudres and demi-muids, as Anforas.

2019 is the first vintage to be made entirely in our new winery, although we’ve been ageing wines in the cave since 2017, and its first year that we’ve been able to vinify everything separately by parcel. If we also bottled them all separately we’d have 45 different wines! Too many to manage, so instead, we will practice the art of blending.

In a cave

All our wines are made in a
cave. We are proud to be a
micro-winery where we can
work in our way and
create unique wines.

Crushed by foot

High-end wined are crushed
by foot, which helps to
prevent seeds being broken,
which would otherwise give a
bitter taste; moreover, we find
it entertaining and traditional.

Taste and taste again

Tasting is key. We taste every
thousand times. For us,
fermentation is just the
beginning; we need to
listen to the wines.

Harvesting
by hand

100% of the grapes reach
the winery having been
harvested by hand, giving
the maximum level of quality.

Minimum
intervention

We believe in using technology
where it is necessary,
but we always seek the
easiest option: nature.

Cement

The traditional cement
deposits were abandoned
many years ago;
we use them to
grow our wines.

Plot organisation

We make wine based on plots
of land. It does not matter
to us if a wine produces
100 bottles, if that is what we
of the land put into bottles.

Barrels

We also make wine in barrels,
but with no rules, using
new wood, different roasts,
different times, different sizes;
the wine is in charge.
