Harsh conditions, great wines
Mano a Mano makes its wines from 330 hectares of own vineyards: 300 hectares are located at Finca La Dehesa in Alhambra (Ciudad Real) and 30 at Finca Sierra de La Solana in Herencia (Ciudad Real). The average age of the vines is around fifty. These vines are cultivated on sandy soils covered by a bed of pebbles, iron, clay and limestone, and with a yield that falls short of 2 kilograms of grapes per plant.
At Bodegas Mano a Mano, we are subject to an ongoing struggle against a complex natural environment given the extreme continental climate of the region. The bodega’s commitment to quality has made the its daily work a major challenge.
Mano a Mano, it also works an experimental vineyard, in the neighbouring village of Herencia, where it studies the behaviour of different varieties, such as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Graciano and Touriga Nacional, used to enhance the wine. Some of these varieties are present in the collection of wines Venta La Ossa.
