Esencia de Monte is made by suitably combining technology and innovation with the tradition in the cultivation of agricultural holdings of two generations, using ecological methods to obtain the best wines.
The situation of the vineyards is in the town of Monovar-Alicante. With the characteristic climate of the Mediterranean area, mild autumns, hot and dry summers.
The lands have diverse textures, predominantly limestone and stony and clayey soils, poor in organic matter. In this way, with the combination of climate and “terroir” that our location presents, it favors the obtaining of wines with a lot of freshness.
Esencia de Monte tinto is a wine obtained from the Monastrell grape, old vines harvested manually, with low production and glass plantations.
Esencia de Monte is a cuvée made by the Pastor Gilabert Family in collaboration with the oenologist Pedro Sarrión, an oenologist with extensive knowledge in the production of wines from Alicante, Jumilla and Castilla la Mancha.
