The Domain: The San Polo Bodega and Winery was originally constructed in 1890 with walls of adobe, the traditional sundried bricks used at that time. With the facade and the structure of the building maintained but the winery itself equipped with state of the art technology, the infrastructure and facilities of San Polo are prepared to make upper range and premium wines.
The individual capacities of the different tanks range from 3.500 liters to 15.900 liters with a total capacity of 3,5 million liters. These are the best conditions to carefully elaborate high quality wines. The wine cellar has a storage capacity for more then 1,000 oak barrels with a sophisticated architecture of airflow that grants perfect levels of temperature, humidity and light impact.
San Polo creates its wines with grapes that come from the La Humbertita and San Jorge estates which border the winery and have a total extension of 100 hectares. Situated on the eastern slopes, the estates are on an altitude of 1,100 to 1,000 m over sea level with privileged conditions: a terroir with strong mineral content, an average temperature of 14 degrees Celsius but with a high termical amplitude, and a reservoir fed by melting water and naturally filtered in different basins. The direct proximity to the winery and careful picking of the grapes assure perfect quality of the grapes when delivered to the winery.
