Amigo de la Tierra, red and white Organic wines

This a project to produce organic wines, in other words wines which are sustainable and take care of the soil. But the sustainability also extends to the human population – much of Spain is isolated and rural and requires support to continue its traditional lifestyle.

Organic wines from La Mancha, bottled in Cariñena. There are two important words in the name of this wine – Amigo: “Friend” and Tierra: “Earth”. The earth needs its friends and the friends need the earth.

A short introduction video about Amigo de la Tierra... coming soon!

Amigo de la Tierra, the Place

Organic wines are grown all over Spain, especially in the drier and more isolated communities like La Mancha or Jumilla. The regions offers choice of climates and we select the sub-region which offers the best quality and style.

Vineyards and wines

Organic and sustainable wines or how to make good wines long term and keep people on the land.

The vineyard is one single estate of 150 Ha. Part of it is planted with 40 to 80 year Garnacha bush vines and another part is more recently planted, including plots of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo, Muscat and Chardonnay. The Macabeo we use comes from cooler, mountain vineyards about 5 km away. All new plantations, including those of Garnacha, are trained using a Cordon Royat system which allows mechancial harvesting and have drip irrigation systems installed to allow the ripening process to be perfectly controlled.

The Wine-making: Built in 2003, the winery is located at one end of this large estate. This winery has all the latest technology and is designed for ease of work to ensure efficient production, keeping costs to a minimum.

Amigo de la Tierra red

The traditional red variety of the Ebro valley, Garnacha, can be light and fruity as well as full and rich. With a skin contact that is measured in minutes rather than hours, a faint but pretty rosé colour is achieved.

Amigo de la Tierra white

The most traditional use of Garnacha is to make young wines, either light and delicate rosés or fruity young reds. But with a light touch of oak, the jammier side of this friendly variety is also brought out, while maintaining a freshness.
