We are a family owned and operated winery using traditional methods in our new facilities to produce wines of exceptional quality. This is brought about by tending the vines with care during growth and selecting only the best grapes at harvest. As a result of this and because of the cleanliness of the elaboration process we have some of the lowest sulphite content in the market.
The founder, Juan M Palomar, during a visit to Napa Valley in California, discovered the great wines from the area. At the same time he noticed the resemblance in climate and geography between that region in California and his village from Granada, Spain.
It was with an explosion of illusion and joy that we begin to work on the project. First by planting wild root stock at the family farm and then, two years later, grafting stems hand carried from Santa Rosa, in California to our small village of Ugíjar. The adventure of wine making had started!
The first vines were planted in 1992 and the winery was concluded by 1998. The grapes and wines are produced and processed in the land of Dominio Buenavista Farm which belongs to our family. On the farm, beside grapes, we grow figs, almonds and olives from centenary trees of the “Lechin” variety. With these olives we produce an exquisite Extra Virgin Olive Oil exported to the United States with the brand name Veleta.
