Terroir

Terroir is the unique taste of a specific place as shown in a wine. It is the magic of the site, its geography, geology, climate. In BSA we love to call it "a sense of place”.

And this is the secret behind our vineyards, one of the highest ones in Spain situated between 700 and 1100 m and which possess natural conditions of absolute privilege.

Of extreme conditions very suitable for obtaining a unique harvest. Caused to a great extent by the amazing altitude, where a beautiful aeration exists and a contrast of temperatures very healthy is generated between day and night. Where the very poor in nutrients slopes soils and with little access to water regulate, in a natural way, our productions of very low yield. Where the harvests are the latest even from the whole Europe.

Where the antiquity of our vineyards collaborate as another factor more to determining concentrations of aromas, color and unattainable flavors.

Where the Garnacha is the queen in its perfect habitat that grants as a result a wine that feeds all of our senses and transcends expectations.

Varieties

Garnacha is the main protagonist of our wines. Also known as Grenache in France and America. It is said that it originally came from the Ebro valley.

Its contribution of body, fruitiness, flavour to ripe fruit and fleshiness allows us the elaboration of monovarietals wines, especially from the old vines, which are surprising for their great concentration and complexity and that make it also the ideal complement for making balanced blends.
