PRODUCT: Ateca Atteca
Ateca Winery, founded in 2005, is the project of the Gil Family in the Denomination of Origin Calatayud, placed in the municipality of Ateca (in Zaragoza), 14km far from the city that names this D.O. Ateca wines are the result of a detailed work on selecting the grape, with exhaustive analytical and organoleptic quality criteria, coming from a harvest done in the precise moment of ripening. The Australian enologist Michael Kyberd is the technical director.
The grapes come from vineyards with low yields located high on the hillsides, 700-1000 metres above sea level. The vineyards are planted in mainly decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. The fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks to obtain a very complex wine after 10 months of maturing in French oak barrels.
