Hacienda Albae is a family-owned business, located 700 meters in the heart of LA MANCHA where the breeze that channels and the temperature differences between day and night make their grapes give the best of it. It is owned by the Carpintero family. It is a well-cared agricultural holding of 500 HA, molded by its owner, Juan Antonio Carpintero throughout his life, to extract the best-quality wines from it, applying maximum technology on the basis of limiting the production of their wines in the market.
Searching of the quality without rest, not realizing that they have become a unique winery, focused on making single varietals with wood thanks to the quality of the raw materials and the winery technology. Vineyards of the farm are controlled by a computer system and managed by an agricultural technical engineer, who performs all the work and controls what are needed to adjust the yields of the plant to the leaf surface to achieve the right ripening of the fruit.
Hacienda Albae has recently joined America Wines Awards 2020 and has received 2 Gold Medals and a Silver Medal for their wines below:
