Team Building: Tasting contest

A fun way to learn about wine and its production. We will begin by briefly learning about the influence on the wine of factors such as climate, soils, varieties, aging processes, choice of wood, etc. We will even be able to see some of these factors directly in the vineyard. Then we will move on to action. Time to work as a group. The wine will have to be tasted blind and compete in teams to find solutions to the enigmas hidden in the glasses. We can complete the workshop with a relaxed lunch, an outing to the vineyard or a swim in our heated pool.

Sobre la bodega

The Puelles family has lived in Ábalos for longer than anyone can remember, and their winemaking tradition goes back just as far. The current generation, the brothers Jesús and Félix Puelles, have enlarge the Molino (Mill) Estate and converted it into a lovely wine cellar, standing alongside the old 17th century water mill which the family bought from the town council in 1844. This Tempranillo-planted, single vineyard bodega follows organic growing methods and produces and ages the wine with the utmost care and attention, before bottling them as an "Estate Wine" under the "El Molino de Puelles" label.

This family winery of wine growers sells 60% in Spain directly from the winery and 40% goes to export.

In addition to making wines, they were pioneers in wine tourism and they organize guided tours and didactic tastings.
