Parcela Particiones

The Particiones vineyard, located in the region of Tobarra, Albacete, is probably the oldest vineyard in the Bruma collection. The vines were planted in 1960.

The vineyard boasts sandy soils which are planted not only with Monastrell but also Airén. It’s one of the most complex wines in the range. The coupage of these varieties and the type of soil give rise to a smooth, elegant wine rather than a full-bodied wine.

The name, Particiones, derives from the fact that in the past the estate belonged just to one individual yet over the generations it has been sold-off in parts and currently the vineyard, the olive groves, and the almond orchard all have different owners.

The philosophy behind the Bruma project is to bottle the singular character of each individual vineyard and, true to its name, Particiones, which in this case refers to ‘allocation of land’, has again revolutionised its character. A substantial number of what were predominantly Monastrell vines have been uprooted to leave the vineyard with a more balanced distribution of red and white grapes.
