THIS IS PINCERNA
Pincerna is more than a winery, it is a very special way of understanding viticulture.
Welcome to innovation, to the recovery of abandoned century-old vineyards, and to the idea that wine is really made in the vineyard.
Passion for wine is what has united the four partners around this project, with the firm intention of recovering abandoned old vines and applying innovation in the winemaking processes.
“Pincerna wines are very popular among people who have acquired the culture of tasting and discovering new wines or indigenous grapes. Internationally, the wines begin to stand out among consumers who enjoy discovering good wines from up-and-coming regions or like to learn about lesser known indigenous varietals.”
Each of the partners brings different experiences, knowledge and values to the project; together they decided to share their passion and effort in the wonderful tasks of creating unique wines, and getting people to enjoy them as much as they do.
Gabriel, economist and entreprenuer from León, represents the third generation of a family of winegrowers. Firm believer of the qualities of the prieto picudo and albarin grapes, he is the CEO of Pincerna.
Andrés is a winemaker who has worked in places where wine is a big issue: Argentina, France and areas of Spain such as La Mancha, Rueda, Ribera del Duero and Toro… until he reached Tierra de Campos (León). He is passionate about the recovery of old vines, and convinced that we need to know and understand the soil under our vineyards. Only if the land is worked properly will we be able to get good wines. Andrés plays a key role in Pincerna, and uses his most important ability to make excellent wines: his instinct.
Alfonso, industrial engineer specialized in international business development for the wine & drinks industry, is specially happy when he sees Spanish brands abroad, and even more if the brand is Pincerna. Alfonso is in charge of Marketing & International Sales.
Abel, born in Grajal de Campos, could have left his town to study, work and live abroad. But he chose to stay. He chose the smell of the land, sunsets in the vineyard, the stress of every harvest, the harsheness of the cold winters, the warmth of the locals. He chose the day-to-day life in the winery and the friends/partners who share with him his passion for wine.
