    Bodegas Patrocinio spearheads innovation through its latest development: the production of a new type of wine, wholly free from animal-based products, i.e. a fully vegan wine.

    Wine is simply grape juice transformed by yeasts (microorganisms), which allow fermentation. Nevertheless, winemaking techniques also include the use of fining agents that help eliminate proteins, yeasts and other molecules that give wine a cloudy appearance.version_spanish

  • Rioja’s grape harvest in a complex European context

    on Nov 1, 17 in The vineyards with Comments Off on Rioja’s grape harvest in a complex European contextcomments

    Fairly uncommon climatic factors have resulted in very low grape yields in Rioja this year. In line with our viticulture team’s report winter and spring had less rainfall and higher temperatures than average in the region. Convergence of both factors caused early shoots with regards to a normal cycle. 2017’s grape harvest was an exceptionally early harvest; as far as our growers are concerned, the earliest ever, finishing by late September. In terms of yields, the slide in grape harvest was more than 20% down on 2016.  version_spanish

  • Tempranillo Blanco – Start of the harvest season

    on Sep 11, 17 in The vineyards with Comments Off on Tempranillo Blanco – Start of the harvest seasoncomments

    At Bodegas Patrocinio we continue to foster Tempranillo Blanco – a relatively new white grape – as a major variety. An early September harvest was set to go down as amongst the smallest but most stupendous hauls in the last harvest seasons. Over the last years we have had a clear vision as to the new key role played by Tempranillo Blanco, thus planting new vines that have already become the lifeline of our floral and fruity whites. version_spanish Continue Reading

  • Patrocinio Tour from Logroño to Mexico stopping at the vineyards

    on Jul 24, 17 in Events with Comments Off on Patrocinio Tour from Logroño to Mexico stopping at the vineyardscomments

    In the last three months, we have travelled thousands of kilometres to be involved in the most important events nationally and internationally, and at our winery we have welcomed distributors and importers that take our wine to all corners of the world. Our destinations included London, the Netherlands, Mexico and Panama, as well as Logroño, Madrid, San Sebastián, Bilbao and Santander, to name just a few. At Bodegas Patrocinio we firmly believe in presenting our wines and making them known in person. This enables us to find out what our customers think first-hand. Which is why we never hesitate to get involved and to accept invitations from our customers to offer tastings or to be present at specialised fairs. In May we travelled to Latin America, and more specifically Panama and Mexico City. In Panama, invited by VinoClub, director of sales Juan Pradell held a tasting for 90 people at The Wine Bar El Cangrejo, introducing the Lagrimas de María range. In Mexico City, we visited La Buena Fé de Polanco, Texas de Brazil and Vinopremier, a Spanish wine shop which recently crossed the ocean to open a new shop in the country. On our return from Latin America, we welcomed our Panamanian, Costa Rican and Puerto Rican importers to the winery. They enjoyed a walk around the vineyards, a tasting in the barrel room and an appetiser on our terrace. In June, Bodegas Patrocinio took part in a new Verema Experience, on this occasion in Madrid. This time, Fernando Villamor, the winery manager, was in charge of presenting the new vintages in the Lágrimas de María and ZINIO ranges at Hotel Westin Palace. At the end of this month, we were also visited by Hein Post Wijn & Delicatessen from Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands. It was a particularly hot day – the temperature reached 39 degrees – but they visited the vineyards and we organised a tasting of the ZINIO range. For the eleventh year, we took part in Riojano, Joven y Fresco, presenting our Señorío de Uñuela and Sancho Garcés ranges in various cities like Logroño, San Sebastián, Bilbao and Santander.
