Viticulture at Bodegas Vicente Gandia

For 135 years we have devoted our efforts and resources to building a winery with a solid philosophy and an essence of its own. Our hallmarks are constant evolution, a focus on innovation and market trends, reinventing ourselves every day.

Our roots run deep in the best terroirs of the Valencian Community, with two estates: Hoya de Cadenas (in the Alta de Utiel Requena) and Casa Gallur (on the slopes of the Sierra de Mariola). Here we develop wines with the essence and DNA of Vicente Gandía, from the vine to your glass.

Of course, it all is controlled by our team of winemakers:

“The wine and the vine has been present in my life since I was born. My grandfather was a teacher and perhaps the most important figure in Spanish viticulture and my father is also a great scholar of viniculture and one of the most important winemakers in the country. That is why, for me, it is my profession but it is also the biggest hobby I have. I live it with passion and enthusiasm, I always look forward to the harvest and still every day I am excited to find the complexity of a good wine”.

Pepe Hidalgo, Director Técnico de Bodegas Vicente Gandia

“As we all know viticulture is the art and science of growing the vine, we have to bear in mind that one of the fundamental factors to obtain a good wine is born from the care and good handling of the grape… To say that as a viticulturist it is work very beautiful but very sacrificed, where each strain if you pamper it and know how to give it what it needs at all times, it will more than reward you for your effort and work.

I would like us to give viticulture the importance it deserves”.

Juan Vicente Montero, Responsable de Viticultura

“Winemaking is like cooking, if you put your heart, passion and wisdom you have such a wonderful cocktail that allows you to create, inspire, shape that pleasant drink such as wine”.

Fernando Freire, Winemaker

“One of the most gratifying things is to see a person or a group of people that you don’t know at all, watch them enjoy your wine, that makes all the effort worth it”.

José Luis Claramunt, Winemaker

“One of the most gratifying things is to see a person or a group of people that you don’t know at all, watch them enjoy your wine, that makes all the effort worth it”.

Salvador Martinez, Winemaker

“Wine is an art and a passion in which I have been involved, and I enjoy every day making bottled secrets, which are tasted in small doses, like great perfumes. Because as someone once said, who knows how to taste, never drinks wine, but tastes secrets”.

Carla Serra, Winemaker

Our production is based on traditional varieties such as Bobal, Monastrell, Macabeo and Muscatel, which play a large part in the composition of the wines we offer. We also innovate with riskier productions and foreign varieties to provide more modern nuances and tastes.

In short, Vicente Gandía’s wines are a reflection of ourselves: authentic, from the Mediterranean, Valencian, rich in nuance and always painstakingly well-mannered and presented.
