our history

los-vinedos-mobile

Located in the north of Granada, it maintains the tradition of a land where the Romans made wine two thousand years ago.

The term Muñana derives from the Arabic-Spanish word “al munya”, which means “desire”. Another definition is “country house, urrounded by lush gardens”.

The village of Muñana used to be located right within the current vineyards. Its inhabitants, the “Moriscos”, were expelled in 1610 by the Spanish King Felipe III.

The Finca de Peñas Prietas, where Muñana's wines are produced, extends over 200 ha (hectares).

Peñas Prietas appeared as "Piedras Prietas" in various documents around 1845-1850, when brandy was manufactured. We deduce from these data that there are vineyards on the estate even before the expulsion of the Moors.

It depends on the varieties, but we do not produce more than 2-2.5 kg. of grape / vine (in other regions it is usual to grow up to 15 kg / vine). This has a fundamental influence on the quality of our wines.

With this we achieve much greater intensity and quality, both aromatic and organoleptic, intensity of color and structure in the reds, etc.

1200m ALTITUDE AND PURE WATER OF SIERRA NEVADA

Our location, bordering the Sierra Nevada National Park and close to the Mediterranean sea creates very special climatic conditions, which allow the cultivation of a significant number of grape varieties, superior to other geographical areas.

The high altitude and temperature range between night and day, the low incidence of pests, more sunny days and lower environmental humidity produce a slow and natural maturation, causing the plant to develop in better conditions than in other latitudes.

Manual harvest

The impediment of the terrain itself with steep slopes obliges us to make a direct selection in the vineyard that allows us to pick the bunches with optimum maturity and an impeccable sanitary condition.

We do not use boxes of more than 15kg of capacity to avoid any process of mosteo and therefore of oxidation during the transport. Conserving 100% the virtues of our fruit.

VARIED CULTIVATION

In the decade of the 80s the Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell varieties were sown, and in 2000, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot were added. In addition to the red grapes we cultivate white varieties: Moscatel, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. This diversity of crops is an added effort, which forces us to put special emphasis on the programming of the harvest and transportation to the winery in perfect conditions to produce complete wines of great complexity

AGING OF WINE IN CLAY CAVES

Our caves provide a constant thermal stability that ranges between 15ºC and 18ºC all year round. This factor is crucial for the aging of wines in french barrels, with a slower evolution, allowing a better assembly between the wine and the aromatic compounds that yields the wood, as well as a greater color stability

CRIOMACERACIÓN CON NIEVE CARBÓNICA

Process specifically made for the production of our white wine, made with varieties Moscatel, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

This procedure facilitates a greater extraction of aromas and flavors, increasing the concentration of the same in the wine and allowing them to be perceptible along with the aromas and flavors of the Moscatel variety
