Paso a Paso is the winery's first Tempranillo produced from the estate grown vineyards planted in the goblet system. A non-interventionalist style of viticulture and enology takes advantage of the high quality vineyards and the grapes they produce. The grapes are sorted meticulously at the winery, and fermented in stainless steel tanks by indigenous yeast. Malolactic occurs in tank, and the wine is transferred to second and third vintage French oak barrels for ageing.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Paso A Paso is pure Tempranillo from La Mancha sold as Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, the generic regional appellation. 2015 was a dry and early harvest. It fermented in stainless steel vat and matured in vats and in well-seasoned 225-liter oak barrels for six months. It's fruit driven, expressive, juicy and clean, very pleasant and straightforward. 120,000 bottles produced.
