The La Boella winery can be found on the estate itself, right next to the vineyards. Inaugurated in 2007, it is a three-storey building. The ground floor houses the fermentation area and the barrels for ageing the wine; the middle floor is where the grapes are brought in and also houses the laboratory, offices and various storage areas; and finally, on the top floor you will find the shop, the tasting room and a fabulous model railway that recreates the “Camp de Tarragona”.
The site of the winery takes maximum advantage of the natural slope of the land to use gravity for many of the winemaking processes.
The harvested grapes are placed in boxes and subjected to a temperature of 4º for 24 hours in a refrigeration chamber. Then they go to the reception area where they are passed through the stemmer to remove the skin and then to a selection table where the lower quality grains and any possible skin remains are removed.
Once the best grapes have been selected, they are lightly pressed and taken to the tanks where fermentation-maceration takes place. This is the process by which the yeast turns the sugars in the must into alcohol. The fermentation tanks are made of stainless steel and are equipped with cooling jackets and a nitrogen inertisation system that guarantees the stability of the wine.
