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: 90% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vinification: The wine was slowly fermented in stainless steel before being cask aged.
Appearance: Plum red with dark ruby undertones.
Taste: An intense aroma of ripe Mediterranean fruit and vanilla from the barrel ageing. It is light on the palate, yet not lacking in body. The tannins have integrated well during the ageing process to leave a very pleasant finish.
Serve: At room temperature with roast poultry or lamb, stuffed peppers or cheese.
