This wine is made from grapes that are grown in the vineyards contained in Pago El Carro, which is located in the Parque Natural die la Mata. The vineyards themselves have sandy soils that is naturally occurring. These same soils is what saved the vines from the phylloxera epidemic.

With great care and attention to the natural cycles, they vines are tended to with the highest level of respect. As with all wines that are crafted by Rafa Bernabe, the only intervention within the winery is whatever is needed. This is another example of a fantastic natural wine from a renowned winemaker in Spain.

After being handy harvested and transported to the winery, the grapes pass will pass through a selection table. The grapes are then cold pressed and undergo fermentation, which is carried out using yeasts in French oak barrels of 500 liters of capacity.

El Carro Parque Natural is then aged for around 6 months: half of the wine is aged in barrels of 500 litre capacity, while the other half is aged in stainless steel tanks.

Excellent customer service!

Can’t rate this Service highly enough. I was looking for a wine to give my dad to drink with his favourite dish, and Alex guided me through what to go for- how the flavours would match the recipe etc. It was like having a personal wine pairing service at my finger tips! My dad was very happy with his gift- delivery was very fast and looked great on arrival!
