BOBAL WINE CELLARS is a Spanish company spearheading the production and bringing to market of grape juice and bulk wine produced by our 17 partner Co-operatives.
BWC is based in Requena, in inland Valencia, the Spanish region with the third-highest area of land under vine in all Spain.
BWC was founded on 10 August 2017 in response to the need to bring together and professionalize the bulk wine trade in the Valencia region.
Made up of 17 Co-operatives, we have over 22,000 hectares of vineyard, with an annual production of between 70 and 100 million litres of wine and grape juice, depending on the year, which constitutes 2% of the total amount produced in all of Spain.
There has been winemaking in this part of Spain for over 2,700 years. Various archaeological sites confirm that wine has been made and traded here from the time of the Iberians up to our own day.
This area is on a small, almost circular plateau that covers over 1,800 km2 some 70 km inland from the Mediterranean Sea, at 600 to 900 metres above sea level.
The winters, with temperatures frequently falling below freezing, are cold and long, and the thermometer can read as low as 15 °C. Spring generally comes late and tentatively, with occasional frosts as late as April and May. Summers are short but intensely hot, with midday temperatures of up to 40 °C. Autumns are short with occasional morning frosts.
THE BOBAL GRAPE
The Bobal is a red grape native to Utiel Requena.
The vine is austere and highly resistant to severe weather and to pests, as well as being highly productive.
It stands up well to water shortages and oidium, but is vulnerable to mildew.
The Bobal vine stands up well to freezing winter weather, and sprouts late as a defence against the unpredictable and damaging spring frosts.
Bobal reds are notable for their strong tannins and their aromas of spice and red fruit, especially cherries. They tend to be low in alcohol and high in acidity.
