The winery "Bodegas Arrocal" is located in Gumiel de Mercado (next Burgos) in the DO area Ribera del Duero
in the Spanish region Castile and Leon
, It was founded in 2002 by Rosa María Arroyo Calvo and Moisés Calvo. The functional bodega is built on the principle of gravity, in order to use as few pumping operations and to ensure schoinende processing. The vineyards cover 17 hectares of vineyards. They are monitored by means of soil probes for the current values of water, nitrogen, phosphorus and magnesium. In the event of any shortage, this can be precisely addressed. The harvest takes place at the beginning of October, when the grapes have reached their full maturity. The fermentation takes place in large stainless steel tanks. Only the two wines "Arrocal" (4 months in American oak barrels) and "Arrocal Selección" (14 months in new French oak barrels) are pressed. Every year 90,000 bottles of wine are produced, of which 70% are exported.
