The wines of Bodegas Juan Carlos Sancha are the result of the vineyards’ cool, high location; their very densely planting (5,000 vines per hectare); and the poor calcareous soils of these vineyards. These factors make the vines “suffer,” producing fewer grapes with higher juice concentration—qualities which contribute importantly to the Bodega’s complex, high-quality wines. Also contributing to the quality of the grapes are the location of the vineyards on south-facing hillsides, enabling both good solar radiation and air flow and reducing vine disease susceptibility.
