Bodegas Monje: From our winery, the panoramic view is a gift: vineyards, mountains, sea, sun: the ideal place to live and care for our wines. Built by my father in 1956 and modernized in 1983, it still has the old oak barrels in which we continue to ferment and age the Tinto Tradicional; thus, we combine the oldest practices with current technology.
The cellar, with a capacity of 160,000 litres, is enough to process our harvest. Ten people make up the human team that makes it possible to continue with the philosophy and affection that this vocation deserves. In El Sauzal, about 600 meters above sea level, in a place called La Hollera, our vineyard is located on rocky but very rich soil, the result of the volcano and the passage of time.
Inclined slopes of difficult mechanization, make the hand of man a constant company. The sun, from the early hours of the morning, and the gentle sea breeze, create a special microclimate for growing vines. With 1,500 vines per hectare and an average age of 50 years, our vines vegetate at ground level for eight months. Then, before veraison, they are raised with forks (wooden stakes) until the end of the harvest. In recent years we have restructured a large part of it and now, transformed to the "low vine" system, we can mechanize some tasks.
We grow Listán Negro, Listán Blanco, Negramoll, Tintilla, Vijariego Negra, Marmajuelo grapes, varieties that provide original characteristics that define our wines. And many more are experimented with, all of them pre-phylloxera, obtained from the legacy of our ancestors.
