The grapes for Imperial Reserva come from our best and oldest vineyards around Villalba, Briones and Torremontalbo, and which are over 40 years old. Rigorous work in the vineyard followed by hand harvesting into 20kg boxes with exhaustive selection in the field ensured the collection of great quality grapes.
Once in the winery, the grapes were held in a refrigerated chamber for 24 hours and then subjected to a second manual selection on a selection table. To ensure gentle handling, the grapes were fed by gravity to French oak vats for the alcoholic fermentation.
Once completed, the wine was then aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months, followed by another 24 months bottle ageing in our century-old cellars until being released to market.
