Our family’s winemaking tradition dates back to the 19th century and with the creation of our new winery, Hacienda del Carche, in 2006 we united this tradition with all the new concepts of growing, producing, and aging. Hacienda del Carche wine is directed towards satisfying the palates of both new and experienced consumers of Jumilla D.O.
Vineyards, olive groves and sun are the body and soul of the land that is covered by the 60 hectares (150 acres) of our estate. Here, the irrigated, shaded crops of the Sierra del Carche are combined with the area’s dry, wild and revealing side; the maturity of the vineyards, more than fifty years old, with the freshness of those planted in 2007; the variety of Tempranillo, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache grapes wrap up the native Monastrell for the production of our red wines, and Macabeo and Savignon Blanc for our white wines… the explosion of contrasts that constitutes the profound essence of this region.
