Video | Jaime Gil, our quality manager and the one who sees everything

In the cellar, everything goes through him, Jaime. Because he is responsible for the quality department, and that means controlling the entire production process. It is the figure in charge of traceability, since since the grape is harvested and until it leaves the cellar converted into wine, the control must be constant for quality reasons and, more importantly, for food safety.

International, national, regional regulations, of protected designation of origin… Everything must be taken into account, and of course, also the certifications to which we are subject to cultivate our vineyards under the criteria of organic farming and because our wines are, in addition, vegans. All this entails a series of processes, with their subsequent audits, which make Jaime’s work essential.

He himself tells us in this video in which you can meet another interesting professional profile that is in a cellar.

Pasión de Bobal red

It is a wine complex enough to please demanding palates, but at the same time, very pleasant to drink, as well as to like younger winelovers pefiles that tend to look for freshness and wines with a lot of fruit and varietal expression. Its aromas are red and black fruits, like strawberry, raspberry or cassis. There are also spicy touches and some licorice. When you drink it, you perceive a tasty, fruity wine, with light touches of vanilla and toasted from the six months spent in French oak barrels.

 

White Fuenteseca

For its preparation we have chosen Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc, which provide a series of very interesting aromas, such as white flower, tropical fruit, apricot skin and fennel. As we told you, it is a young wine and at the same time very elegant. Very fresh on the palate, but very broad, tasty and with an excellent acidity and balance.

We wait for you with them in Ferevín!
