Tomás Postigo, the Pioneer Winemaker

SobreTomasPostigo

Lots of lines have been written about the expertise and the influence of Tomás in the appellation Ribera del Duero D.O. but are his wines the ones that speak out for him loud and clear.

From 1988 to 2008 he created and managed Pago de Carraovejas, introducing the gravity fed technique in Spain. This technique allows major care of the grapes, placing them into the deposit for fermentation almost uncrushed. From then on, his wines carry his name along with the grape combination of expertise and eagerness for improvement and innovation.

The first thing you notice when you visit the winery is classical music. They have it playing all day long so the grapes, right after the harvest, and the wine live in a peaceful atmosphere. If you close your eyes and focus on the music and the smell, you could say you are in Heaven. At least, the part of Heaven where they produce the wine.

The second thing is the overhead travelling crane used for the gravity fed technique. Then is when you discover all the close attention they pay to every single detail, selecting the best grapes from the area or working very close to the barrel-making company that produce the NEW french oak barrels they use every year. Top quality is the standard, and nothing else is allowed.

The third and last thing is that you feel among family. There are two reasons for that: The whole winery is like a family, working actual members of the Postigo Vergel family. Besides, they treat you like one of them, which makes you feel at home.

If you want to know more about them and the process they follow to make their fantastic wines, I suggest you to visit our website page about their wines. You will also discover that they are the first winery in Spain to get the “Huella de Carbono” (Carbon footprint) award, as they work responsibly and efficiently with natural resources.

In conclusion, to taste a portion of the appellation D.O. Ribera del Duero directly from one of their champions, open a bottle of Tomás Postigo Tinto, and let you be transported to such an amazing wine land.
