The Story

The inimitable Viña El Pisón produces a wine which is a reflection of the competence of our ancestors and the passion of those who want to keep the spirit of a vineyard alive.

 

An extraordinary vineyard, an extraordinary wine. The pure expression of the symbiosis between soil, climate, vine and man. The overwhelming sweetness together with a hold energy message. This is a feast of sensations difficult to understand full of sensibility and mystery. Viña El Pisón is a wine to lay down and to enjoy time’s magic.

The delicate balance between all of the natural agents that comprise this unique environment produces a wine that is full of subtle minerality, fine fruit, both complex and delicate seasoned nuances and tannins that have enveloping and caressing volumes. This is a wine with surprising expressivity; a wine with a natural elegance that provokes deep and changing feelings.

Vintage 2001

Viña El Pisón – Bodegas y Viñedos Artadi S.A.

The main peculiarity of this wine is that it is elaborated from one single vineyard called “Viña El Pisón” which is located in Laguardia, facing southeast. It covers an area of 2.4 Has, is situated in a small hollow, protected by a natural barrier of stones and lies in sandy limestone rock.

This vineyard is located in Laguardia. It was planted in 1945 by the grandfather Jenaro San Pedro Carrera. Since 1991 we have cultivated its grapes to create a wine which reflects the exclusivity and the peculiarities of the microclimate and the soils. There is a sentimental reason behind the elaboration of this wine out of this single vineyard and it is a reflection of the knowledge of our ancestors and our passion to keep the spirit of the vineyard alive. Since Artadi was founded in 1985, the main concept has been: "!The value of great wines is closely related to the soil and the people". Twenty years later, they have been able to realise their dream of producing historic wines in three different wine making regions.
Unlike the rest of the wines, Viña El Pisón follows a Burgundy style, single vineyard wine.

The balance of natural elements result in a wine full of fine fruits, delicated spices, mineral hints and silky tannins. It is a wine full of body and character, elegant, with depth and complex sensations.
