Mountain vines, a cave, and a dream: to bring back a tradition. We do not want rules; we trust our land, our grapes, and our senses.We are Bodegas Frontonio.
Our winery is a 200-year old house with an underground cave (3 floors) which allow us to leverage the effects of gravity to process the grapes as gently as possible, as well as benefitting from the naturally cool environment and its optimal humidity for wine ageing. After extensive renovations, the cellar can now process 70,000kg of grapes, and age almost 50,000 l. in variety of vessels: concrete, oak foudres and barrels up to 600liters (demi-muid).
Even though wine ageing was carried out there until 2017, the first vintage entirely produced in our new winery was accomplished in 2019. We were able then to vinify separately every parcel, a process which resulted in 45 different wines. Too many to manage, so instead, we will practice the art of blending.
