A site where the clean and natural water from Sierra Nevada slithers among the vineyards.
A site where the high altitude (1.200 meters) and a great thermal amplitude joint an extremely rich soil for providing grapes with a unique character and personality.
A site called Bodegas MUÑANA, our estate, whose environment of unparalleled beauty invites to enjoy nature and inspires artists.
It is under these unique conditions that we grow our grapes and create our wines, whose production is performed by combining tradition in the collection, processing and ageing in natural caves, with high technology applied to manufacturing and analyses. This results in the production of wines with their own life and personality…
We are at an altitude of 1.200 meters (Muñana is the highest commercial winery in Spain), in the Cortes y Graena District, on the Northern hillside of Sierra Nevada (High Plateau), an area offering amazing conditions for obtaining extraordinary grapes.
The area offers great temperature contrasts of over 20°C between night and day, a good number of sunlight time and scars rain. All this contributes to high-quality differentiation thanks to a homogeneous maturation that avoids an excessive acidity and allows producing well-balanced wines.
Irrigation is performed with mineral rich water originated from the Sierra Nevada and both the location and climate allow for diverse grape varieties.
EXHAUSTIVE CONTROL of the WHOLE PROCESS from its very beginning: agriculture, oenology, crianza, bottling, labelling and distribution.
All our wine production is carried out with grapes from our own vineyards, which are intensively controlled during their maturation. The collection is made by hand in boxes containing between 15 and 20 kg and, when received, they are kept in a walk-in cooler over night.
Combining tradition and state-of-the-art technology, the aging is performed in galleries within natural caves.
Storage capacity of French Oak Barrels and American Oak Barrels, purchased from the best French and American barrel suppliers renewed every 5 years; for 6-month crianza in the case of Delirio Roble and of 12-month in our crianzas.
The history of the MUÑANA Wineries started in the 1980s, when the first vines were planted in the "Peñas Prietas" estate in order to obtain the classical young wines of the area.
Since then, the estate, its crops and its wines have evolved constantly. In 2002, the MUÑANA trademark was born. Its name refers to a site in the estate where the water from the snow of Sierra Nevada is received. It is also the name of a small town in Avila, called MUÑANA, located in an area similar to the estate, with regard to altitude (both located at 1.200m), orography (surrounded by mountains) and crops (peaches, cherries and vines).
In 2017, the family business Agro Sierra Nevada S.L became new owner of Bodegas MUÑANA and continually pushes the estate to new innovation and quality improvements. The winery has turned into a referent that is repeatedly receiving prizes and mentions of the highest rank in the world of oenology. Our production of wines prompt the outburst of a personality that grows directly from the soil: extraordinary grapes and unique maturation conditions.
