History:

Bodegas San Isidro was founded on 1934 as "El Progreso" Agricultural Syndicate. It participates actively in the Jumilla Denomination of Origin Control Board since it was created in 1966, promoting its recognition in the world of winemaking.

BSI is currently made up of a large number of cooperative partners, all of whom work under an innovative concept of quality and service, which has enabled us to place BSI wines amongst the best in the world.

Regional information:

The D.O. (Designation of Origin) Jumilla area is in the prebetic area, forming part of the transition between the Mediterranean Levante coast and the La Mancha Castilian plateau.

It stands out due to its wide valleys, surrounded by mountain ridges. The only permanent flow of water is the Mundo River which runs through the Hellin area.

Vinification:

Maceration phase lasts 15 days, in order to extract all the necessary components that are present on the grape skin, as well as a good structure.

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature, around 22ºC. Afterwards, when the wine has naturally stabilized, the ageing phase starts to take place, inside American and French oak barrels, and it lasts more than 3 years.

The wine is then bottled and aged for a further 2 years inside the Ageing Room.

Please drink responsibly
