Josefina Piñol Blanco is an estate-bottled wine made by the Piñol family located in the high elevation vineyards of Terra Alta, south of Barcelona. The story of Cellar Vinos Piñol mirrors the ascendance of Spanish wines in world markets over the past ten years, a story of how a reverence for old, treasured vineyards and the best family traditions have been combined with new winemaking methods to produce wines with sterling quality. Similar to Yecla and Vinos de Madrid, Terra Alta is one of Spain's “up-and-coming” wine regions with an identity of exciting innovation and progressive change. Josefina Piñol (White) Dulce is often called “the olive oil wine” because of the shape of the bottle. It is made with Garnacha grapes harvested later in the season from vines over eighty-five years old. Josefina is fermented naturally to 13%. Once fermentation is finished, the skins are distilled to make a high quality grappa used to increase the overall alcohol content of the wine to 15%. Juanjo G. Piñol and Cristina Borrull are the winemakers. Juanjo's mother Josefina remains in charge of the family cellar.click here for more information.
