Spanish wines provide outstanding quality, especially for the price. Since 1853, four generations of the Lozano family have focused on making quality wines. Bodegas Lozano has 2.400 acres of vineyards dedicated to providing quality wines exclusively for the Gracida Brand. Being located only 10 minutes from the main winery in La Mancha, Bodegas Lozano can ensure consistency in quality each year for Gracida Wines.
Our vineyards are planted in clay and calcareous soils in a continental climate. We harvested the Tempranillo in the third week of September and the Cabernet Sauvignon the following week. Fermentation lasted 10 day at a temperature of 68-77ºF and 15 days of post-fermentative maceration. The Gran Reserva wine spent at least 24 months in American and French oak barrels prior to bottling and almost the the same time in bottle prior to being released.
