Bodegas Pigar is born back in 2014 as the consolidation of a young couple’s dream: Juán and Susana. Over the years, Juán’s family cultivated the vines to sell to the local co-operative and always kept a little back for their own consumption. Since Juán took over as winemaker, they own 8 hectares of organic vineyards, making high-quality wines with micro vinifications from single vineyards. The labels on the bottles are designed by Susana herself. 

 

All his wines reflect the singularity of the terroir, being all Pigar’s wines very different from the mainstream local wines. He farms organically (not certified) and applies natural winemaking practices in his tiny garage winery: indigenous yeast, no fining, no filtration, and no sulfur additions.

 

Orange Tardana is a blend of 95% Tardana with a 5% of Moscatel. Tardana is a local variety normally picked mid/late October. There are not many vineyards of Tardana left. This comes from some 70 year old bush vines planted in Paraje Valderrama by Juan’s grandfather in 1967. The size of the vineyard is half hectare. Wild fermented on the skins for 25 days in very old amphorae (300L & 700L) recovered from old wineries (one of them belonging to his grandfather) as they were commonly used in the region in the past.
