Bodegas Muñana, one of the commercial wineries with its own vineyard at the highest altitude in Europe.
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 probably derives from the Arabic-Hispanic word "al munya" (orchard or farm), and this in turn from the classical Arabic "al-munyah" (desire). This word originally designated an orchard or a country house, surrounded by gardens and land for cultivation.
Within the domains of the estate where the vineyards now grow, there was an old town called Muñana inhabited by Moors, which after their expulsion in 1570 was depopulated
The Peñas Prietas land, where Muñana's wines are produced, extends over 200 ha (hectares).
Peñas Prietas appeared as "Piedras Prietas" in various documents around 1845-1850, the time 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.
The impediment of the terrain itself with very steep slopes forces us to make a direct selection in the vineyard that allows us to pick the bunches with optimal maturation and an impeccable sanitary condition.
We do not use boxes of more than 15 kg of capacity to avoid any process of oxidation during transport. Preserving 100% the virtues of our fruit.
In the 80s, the Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell varieties were planted, and in 2000 Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot were added. In addition to the reds, we grow white varieties: Muscat small grain, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. This diversity of crops is an added effort, which forces us to place special emphasis on the scheduling of the harvest and the transport to the winery in perfect condition to produce complete wines of great complexity.
AGING, CLAY CAVES
The caves provide a constant thermal stability that ranges between 15 ℃ and 18 ℃. This factor is crucial for aging wines in barrels, with a slower evolution, which allows a good blend between the wine and the aromatic compounds that the wood yields, as well as greater color stability.
CRYOMACERATION WITH CARBONIC SNOW
Process specifically carried out for the production of our white wine, made with Moscatel, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc varieties.
This procedure facilitates a greater extraction of aromas and flavors, increasing their concentration in the wine and allowing them to be perceptible together with the aromas and flavors of the Moscatel variety.
