Wine has a history. And history is full of wine. That of Carlos Serres (Charles, in French) is one of them. One of those which happen once in a lifetime and perdure.
Not only because he saw in Haro a perfect place to make wine of great quality but, above all, because he envisaged a new horizon for Rioja wine not considered until then: international exports.
He came from Bordeaux, where the phylloxera pest had compromised winemaking. This famous French wine consultant found in Haro the perfect terroir to make Bordeaux style wines, with a climate and terrain which reminded him of the best terroirs in Bordeaux.
A perfect place to make wines that met the quality, flavour and personality expectations of the most discerning international palates. Elegant wines with a Rioja flavour, ready to conquer; even overseas.
Tempranillo Blanco is a minority indigenous white grape variety which is exclusive to the DOCa Rioja. It is the result of a natural mutation of Red Tempranillo found in a vineyard in Murillo de Rio Leza in 1988. With smaller clusters and berries than the red variety, it offers wines of intense fruity, floral aromas, with a great personality.
Carlos Serres Tempranillo uses all the grapes of the Tempranillo variety from agreements that the winery maintains with an exclusive group of winemakers from the surroundings of Haro. The vineyards have an age of between 10-20 years. The winery jointly manages the cultivation of vineyards to ensure maximum fruit quality, with continuous monitoring...
