Bodegas Vinessens, Villena Alicante
Bodegas Vinessens is a small family run winery based in Alicante. All of their wines are made in the most natural way possible, practicing organic agriculture. The focus is on local grapes such as Monastrell, Alicante, Bouschet and Malvasia, and only natural yeasts. Absolutely no chemical additives are used in the wines. In their own words 'we believe our grapes should express themselves naturally, so it is our job as wine makers to provide them with the best possible environment in which to grow. The less intervention from us in the winery the better, so our wines can truly reflect the character of our wonderful land.'
At Vinessens they are the third generation of vine growers. They continue the hard work started by their grandparents over 65 years ago. As the first generation to make bottled wine the philosophy is to produce high quality wines with as little human intervention in the winery as possible. In order to achieve this the work that takes place in the fields is fundamental. Everything is done to favour the best quality grapes produced under the strict principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture.
