Bush vine vineyard

This is the third estate in José Manuel Ortega’s winery empire, currently covering Chile, Argentina and Spain. Both Jancis Robinson and Steven Spurrier have highlighted José as a world class producer in all three countries.

The Spanish estate is located in the premium red wine region of Ribera del Duero and is planted with 60ha of Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo), a large proportion of which is 22 to 52 years old. The remarkable vineyards are situated in a bend of the Duero River where a sheer 15m cliff face separates the fast-flowing river from the edge of the vineyards.

With a soil type reminiscent of Châteauneuf-du-Pape on the estate, the vines benefit from extended ripening hours due to the heat-retaining qualities of the stones. This, coupled with the 700m altitude of the vineyards, creates huge potential for the production of world class wines.

These wines are so good and have received so much praise that it has made O. Fournier Spain the ‘exception that proves the rule’ as far as Seckford Agencies being ‘New World specialists’!

The Spanish estate is located in the premium red wine region of Ribera del Duero and is planted with 60 Ha of Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo), a large proportion of which is 22 to 52 years old. The remarkable vineyards are situated in a bend of the Duero River; a sheer 15m cliff face separates the fast-flowing river from the edge of the vineyards.
The soil is a combination of sand and large pebble stones reminiscent of Chateauneuf du Pape. This soil type is unique to O Fournier's estate within the Ribera del Duero region and the vines benefit from extended ripening hours due to the heat retaining qualities of the stones. This, coupled with the 700m altitude of the estate creates huge potential for the production of world class wines.
Bodega y Vinedos O. Fournier's mission is to become one of the most outstanding high-quality group of wineries. It aims to achieve this goal using the competitive advantages the vineyards and the weather offer as well as the enabling technology and the relevant local and international winemaking knowledge.

Organic / Biodynamic

We are not officially organic. We consider working with the environment one of our top commitments. We do not use artificial fertilizers and we do not use herbicides. We are not organic at the winery. Everything is done with our labour force. We feel that the lack of use of these components also improves the quality of our grapes and thus of our wines. At some point in the near future, we shall certify our vineyards as organic but for all practical purposes they can be considered as such.
