About the winemaker
R. López de Heredia
Historically, most of the wineries that produce fine quality wines age in barrels, an important factor of supremacy, which is why many of these wineries had their own cooperage workshop, and which have gradually disappeared for obvious reasons of profitability. .
In López de Heredia, as has been said, we continue to maintain this workshop, which already represents an important additional effort; but it is even more so, by participating in a direct and committed way in the entire cooperage process: From the acquisition of the wood at source (oaks in their natural state, all of them from the Appalachian Mountains, in the USA) to the construction and assembly of the barrel with its cellos, without forgetting the intermediate processes (sawing, drying/curing, toasting...)
But, having said this, we do not intend to make a science of the cooperage technique: Our purpose is, above all, to transmit a series of knowledge to the consumer that is little disclosed within the whole of winemaking; and show, in turn, the criteria that in López de Heredia we adopt when selecting the wood, contributing, we believe, to a better understanding of the characteristics of our wines.
