Finca Antigua

Finca Antigua Winery
Finca Antigua is the latest project by the renowned Martínez Bujanda Family that they have initiated in the central part of Spain. The family purchased the fifteen year old vineyards in 1999 and were so impressed with the quality of the grapes from this vineyard that they immediately set out to plan the construction of a brand new winery to make the most of their spectacular fruit. The Finca Antigua Estate encompasses over 2500 acres in total and of that, 679 acres are planted to grapes. The average age of the vines is over 15 years old and the following varietals are planted: Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Merlot, Syrah, Viura and Viognier.

The site itself has numerous advantages when it comes to growing grapes. Those advantages include the altitude of the vineyard, the soil composition and the soil depth. At an average of over 2,500 feet above sea level, Finca Antigua enjoys cool nights and hot days during the period from mid-August to mid-September. This ensures a slower ripening, adding complexity to the final wines. The soil is has a high content of calcium carbonate, an active limestone content of approximately 13% and a low level of organic material. The cultivated ground has an average depth of about three feet. These conditions give the Finca Antigua Estate tremendous advantages over surrounding vineyards and combine to yield bold, powerful wines.
