Under the southern sun, the gentle hills of Montilla and Moriles resemble the waves of a sea of vineyards. The green vines, the blue sky, the white soil. And the roads, which are witnesses of history. Winding paths that lead to the old presses where the fruit is taken during the harvest.
Gentle, fine and very fresh, Pedro Ximénez grapes speak of the landscape in Montilla- Moriles, its warm climate and albariza soils. Rich in sugars, they are the essence of our pure generoso wines and of our region’s renowned and balanced sweet wines.
Fruit and must aromas, wine bubbling in jars, long rows of casks in the bodega, old soleras and scales or criaderas neatly stacked in tiers. The veil of flor in the ageing casks. Air, time, life. Nature hosts this festival and experience steers it. Character and grace.
All this takes place in the heart of Montilla, in one of the most beautiful winemaking and ageing buildings. Clean lines, white walls, neat scales and yellow albero sand. The traditional Hermanos Gracia winery is a radiant example of wine architecture and southern charm.
The winery is an icon of balance and sensitivity. It is also a practical space that simplifies winemaking decisions and quality production. An environment where specialised processes are interwoven with a key factor such as time.
