La Font de la Figuera, Valencia
Our winery is situated in Font de la Figuera and was built from three old wineries that belonged to private winegrowers. The winery over time has been renovated and adapted to incorporate new winemaking and bottling techniques. So, we currently have a modern winemaking installation which gives a free rein to our creativity, a bottling line equipped with the latest technology and an aging room for top quality wines. With all this we can serve our salesmen’s requirements and maintain our winemaking tradition combining the latest winemaking techniques.
A perfect situation for growing quality grapes.
The vineyards are 90 kilometres from the Mediterranean and at an altitude of between 600 and 800 metres between two valleys whose orientation generates a Mediterranean-Continental microclimate that together with poor soils form a perfect combination for the growing of quality grapes. The winery owns 30 hectares of vineyards of predominantly local varieties. Apart from these vineyards we also have historically sourced grapes from local independent growers since the1950s. We cultivate 40-year-old vines in goblet form, as well as young trellised grown vines. We work with local varieties such as Monastrell, Tempranillo, Garnacha Tintorera, Verdil and Moscatel which compliment to perfection foreign varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz (Syrah).
Toni Arraez Calabuig, our Managing Director since 2007, has been a revolution for us, contributing his personality and his rakish vision of modern wine, without losing the essence of the growing area and a long family tradition.
During its 67-year-old history the winery has been captained by three generations of Arraez who knew how to read the needs of the society to which they belonged. Toni’s grandfather, Antonio Arraez Garrigós, had the great idea of founding a winery in 1950. He started selling his wines both in bulk and in bottles thanks to the incorporation of new technologies in winemaking, viticulture and sales.
