Agustín Navarro is responsible for Bodega Sierra Norte in Jumilla. There he is responsible for controlling the technical direction of the vineyard and supervising everything that happens in the winery. Come on, it does not stop!
He is incombustible and the passion for his work takes it also to his leisure time, since when he goes to those far trips that he likes to do, he always takes a bottle of wine, to share it with his companions of adventures in some special moment.
Today is our protagonist and in this video he tells us how is the work he develops in the winery :)
In March the vines cry… But they are not living any drama, the truth is that life returns to them after the period of dormancy in which they remain during the winter. We tell you why…
The action starts at the roots, which perceive more heat in the earth and begin to activate, generating activity in the form of sap. This begins to ascend to feed the plant and provide it with all the energy it needs for the tremendous work it has to undertake.
The Monastrell grape is fashionable, and also, thanks to it, we can produce some wines of extreme quality very applauded in international competitions and renowned as the Berliner Wein Trophy. From there it is from where the last of our medals has come, the gold won by Equilibrio 9, a monovarietal wine from Monastrell that takes several vintages to win practically everything.
The main value of Bodega Sierra Norte is undoubtedly human capital. More than thirty people are already part of this family that this year celebrates 20 years. Two decades in which the passion for work, dedication and respect for cultivation have been the pillars on which we have grown. And together we have celebrated it. We have gathered in an act that took place in the Mestalla VIP box to our team, our distributors and the media to launch a message of thanks for these 20 years of journey, and to announce that we have energy and projects for many more. Among our short-term plans, the inauguration of the new winery in Calderón (Requena) with which we will fully enter the wine tourism. In addition, we also present a new wine, Equilibrio Sauvignon Blanc, and we announce that with the new vintage we incorporate two certificates, that of organic wine and that of vegan wine.
What a week we are living! We have received the news of two very important prizes within the wine sector. The first of these has come from Germany, where the prestigious Mundus Vini contest has distinguished with a gold medal Equilibrio 9, a monovarietal of Monastrell from vineyards over 40 years, which in its preparation has spent nine months in barrels of French and American oak. It is a balanced wine that is awakening a lot of expectation in national and international competitions, in fact, recently has also received a gold in the Asian Wine Trophy and is rated with 92 points in the guide of James Suckling.
The Monovino awards, which select only monovarietal wines, have already published their final medals of the 2019 edition, and among the winners are three of our wines, which have received three gold medals.
Pasión de Moscatel has received the white wine gold without aging in wood, and Pasión de Bobal red and Equilibrio 9 have received the gold in the category of red wines with up to 12 months of aging in wood.
