Hacienda La Parrilla
El Pinto is a collaboration between Les Caves de Pyrène and Hacienda La Parrilla. The idea behind this project is to create excellent value wines, from sustainably grown grapes, as naturally as possible, wines that will identified with the characteristic of the area.
The vineyards are part of a 500-ha estate in the San Jose del Valle, inland, 35km south east of Jerez, in beautiful countryside close to the Sierra de Cádiz. Made up of old olive trees, vineyards (17ha), pasture (where Iberico pigs roam free) and other crops. Owned by the Rebuelta González brothers they built the winery in an old olive mill, within their charming ranch house which dates from 1881.
