The story of Bodegas Pinord started more than 150 years ago, when the Tetas family began to make wines on their estate at Sant Cugat Sesgarrigues from grapes they grew themselves and vinified in the traditional way. Since then, the wines produced by the family have been growing in prestige and the family name has become inseparably linked to the name of Penedés wine. In 1942 José Maria Tetas established the existing wine cellars at Vilafranca del Penedés, only 4 km from the original estate. At the present time, Pinord has facilities that can produce more than five million bottles a year, whilst retaining the family integrity and quality standards for which they have become well-known in the area. Today, three generations work together in the family business.
Grapes: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot
Vinification: After each variety is separately vinified and macerated on their skins, they are carefully blended, stabilised and transferred to oak casks where they are aged for a year. It then undergoes one years ageing in bottle before its release.
Tasting Note: Brick red, with intense aromas of coffee and spice. Full bodied and rich, with liquorice notes and firm but ripe tannin. A smooth and long finish.
Serve: At 18C with roasts and grilled meats
