Chozas Carrascal represents a firm commitment to produce single-estate wines at the highest international level. What makes us different from the rest is our determination and careful combination of tradition and modernity. We started working with a clear idea: to restructure our vineyards, keeping the centuries-old variety of Bobal and planting new varieties that would give an intimate and unique character to our wines. Our vineyard is located on top of a small hill 700 meters above the Mediterranean Sea level. The philosophy of our winery has always been linked to our commitment to protect the environment. We were among the first to grow foreign varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc for white grapes, and Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for red ones. Our vineyards are the oldest and the ones with more quantity of these varieties in the region. Despite being close to the sea (just 60 km), our Mediterranean climate with continental influences is perfect for us to enjoy long cold winters and short warm summers. The range of temperatures that affect our winery is wide. This allows our vineyards to produce and assimilate nutrients during daylight, and to have a nice rest at night. Our vineyards grow in a slight slope; they receive sunlight and fresh air. The loamy chalky soil is very important in the sensory quality of our wines. This temperature and the limestone terrains give, as a result, a soil capable of producing wines of great personality.
