Elaboration Diamante Verdejo
Once the grapes are received in the winery, they are kept cold at a controlled temperature. The grapes already destemmed begin cold maceration, leaving the skins in contact with the must, so that it acquires the aromas of the skins. Once the pressing is done, the cold fermentation begins for 21 days at a temperature of 14 ºC, in this way we manage to maintain the maximum degree of freshness in the wine.
What kind of wine is Diamante Verdejo
Fresh and fruity young wine.
The Franco Españolas winery
Bodegas Franco-Españolas was born in 1890 as the union between France and Spain at a peak in Rioja, when the French came to the region trying to replace their vineyards devastated by the phylloxera disease. It was the origin of the "fine Rioja wines".
All this led Frederick Anglade Saurat, a native of Bordeaux, to found Franco-Spanish Wineries in 1890. The first harvest, a year later, results in the winery's iconic wines: Diamante and Estilo Burgundy. This was renamed Rioja Bordón in the 1950s, and in 2017 it was redesigned as Bordón.
In 1920, fifteen years after Anglade's death, the French sold their shares and the winery became entirely Spanish. King Alfonso XIII visits the winery in 1903 and in 1925. Ernest Hemingway will do so in 1956.
The end of the Prohibition Law in the US in 1933 and the resurgence of the Regulatory Council in 1953 will give a boost to the exports of Rioja wines. Franco-Spanish has a presence in large European cities, as well as in Caracas, Buenos Aires, Havana and New York. 1964 is an excellent vintage, perhaps the best of the century.
