Novelties in Bodegas San Alejandro

Novelties in Bodegas San Alejandro

In the constant search for new ways of winemaking and aging that allows us to produce wines with identity and originality, Bodegas San Alejandro is using a new concrete tanks with an ovoid shape that allows the wine to microoxygen naturally and get very high fruit aromas. Also this shape add a subtle movement of molecules and lees that results in a more intense and full bodied wine.

It is a type of aging without any transfer of oak notes which is looking for the fruit as the main flavor in the wine. This tanks are constructed in reinforced concrete with a pure cement ineer. The volume is 2000 liters of wine and usually focused to produce top wines.

Las Rocas in Houston

Las Rocas de San Alejandro en Houston

And we continue in our particular American conquest, this time in Houston.

Did you know that Houston is the base of the major concentration of investigation and health institutions of the world and that is where it is placed the NASA spatial center of control?
In addition, the economy of Houston possesses a wide industry base in the energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, transports and an important center for the creation of oil equipments.

For all of this LAS ROCAS needed to be present in a big way!

We were charmed with finding this precious display of our wines in one of the best chains.

Bodegas San Alejandro in Vinexpo

Next Sunday, June 14th, a new edition of Vinexpowill take place in Bordeaux, France.

For those who had never heard about it, this Fair, dedicated to the world of wine and other alcoholic drinks is the most important one of its kind worldwide. It has taken place every odd-year since 1981 and, since its creation by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bordeaux, the number of attendees has increased every edition having reached four times the initial number of both exhibitors and attendees coming from 140 different countries from the 5 continents. Besides, the quality of buyers has gradually increased: you can find representatives from the biggest supermarket chains to the most prestigious hotels and restaurants from all over the world. All these features make of Vinexpo a “must-attend” event for any producer or professional in the wine world.

This is an event we cannot miss! So, Bodegas San Alejandro will participate in this new edition as an exhibitor in the following location: Hall 1, Stand E-135. Contrary to previous editions, we will share booth with our co-workers from Domaine Lafage, whose winemaker, Jean Marc-Lafage, has worked as a consultant of BSA for many years now.
