The spirit of ...gratias maximas is the enormous gratitude that we feel for the generosity of all those people who over the years have contributed in one way or another to make true a dream, make our own wine. That´s why, the names that appear on the label, are names of real people, those from whom we keep valuable memories in our enological lives.
With the heritage of tradition and focusing on the variety bobal, we want somehow to praise and make a wine matured in barrels, complex, structured, full of energy and personality that will not leave indifferent to those who dare to taste it.
We want to break taboos and learn everyday, with vineyard management research in our own vines, trying different ways of pruning, natural treatments, defoliation..., in order to get bunches of bobal that express all the effort and love invested, and surprise both, friends and strangers.
Extremely careful traditional production, we make a cluster selection in field, a manual "pissage" and aging in used oak barrels during 12 months to respect the personality of the grape variety.
...gratias maximas is a wine of limited production, the result of our efforts to bring everyone closer to the consumption of high quality wine...

Ana, Ivan and Jose, are partners in our company TresGe Wine Consulting. After many years being the winemakers of other wineries, we decided to make our own wines ...gratias wines, in which we can express our concerns and our oenological experiences, but...
...gratias is born as a gratitude to all those people who have helped us in our enological lives: family, friends, partners, teachers, masters... from whom we keep highly important and valuable memories.
Everything began during a friends get together, when we made a barrel of red wine with Ivan´s father grapes, that came from an old vineyard from his hometown (Alborea, Manchuela, Spain). Although wines made with the native red grape bobal, have always been considered as bulk wines, we want to demonstrate that high quality wines can be made with bobal grapes, not only young wines, but also premium wines, and above all, rosé wines, in which bobal expresses all its fruitiness and freshness.
In this, our most personal project, we aim to make an ethical wine, this means for us, a wine which is cultivated, made and sold with respect, honesty, fair trade, happiness and hope of all those people who work with us and those who will drink it.
For all these reasons, we are recuperating old vines in order to prevent them from being ripped out for not being profitable and recovering viticulturists who come back to their roots and lands. Following the concepts of bio and biodynamic schemes, we define the terroirs depending on the winegrower, because if soil, variety and climate are important key factors, then we think that human input is vital, that´s why we talk about Paco´s Terroir, Pepe´s Terroir, Sergio´s Terroir...
At last but not least, during winemaking, artisanal and natural concepts are our philosophy, that´s why we avoid as long as we can the use of additives and a reduced use of sulfur.
...gratias everyone for making true our dream.
...wines that make people feel good...
...always bobal 100%...
