One of the natural processes that shape the personality of the wines that come from our Viña Lanciano estate is malolactic fermentation in barrel.
The period of hectic activity in the vineyard and winery now seems very far away. Those times when we looked up at the sky praying for good weather, the supervision of tasks and equipment, and the picking of grapes for sampling. The harvest is a time of upheaval when a large part of the year’s efforts can be undermined by climatic conditions.
The ‘APERTURA MADRID GALLERY WEEKEND’ event recently took place, briefly converting Madrid into the world capital of contemporary art.
Organised by @Arte_Madrid, this major art get-together included more than 45 galleries and art centres with special programmes and schedules, as well as the involvement of Madrid’s biggest museums (Reina Sofía, Thyssen, Fundación Mapfre, Museo Lázaro Galdíano, Fundación Telefónica…). The event amassed some 40,000 visitors from all over Europe and turned Madrid into a vast public museum.
The search for unique vineyards and our thirst for innovation have seen us embark on a new adventure in the heart of the D.O. Rueda, resulting in the creation of Marqués de Burgos Verdejo. This new wine joins our Castilian family which, up until now, had been formed of Marqués de Burgos Roble and Crianza, together with the famed 8000, the fruit of a selection of hundred-year old vines located in the area of the oldest vineyards in the Ribera del Duero.
Summer pruning – or “el desniete” as it is called in Spanish – is a practice that is carried out in the vineyard to remove unnecessary vine shoots that could impair the correct ripening of the bunches. The objective is to better aerate the plant and try to ensure that nutrients are directed to the grapes and do not remain in the leaves.
The city of Logroño hosted recently the third edition of CONCENTRICO, the Arts and Architecture festival that invites us to rediscover corners of our town with some historical and cultural interest. A different way of touring places that usually go unnoticed; transformed into unique locations.
