“Juan Antonio Ponce produces refined wines, showing all the modernity of rustic grapes."
The soils in Castilla-La Mancha are very homogenous throughout the region and tends to be flat. This wine region represents a vast expanse - the central Iberian plateau. The soils are based on red sandy clay, rich in limestone and chalk, but poor in organic material. The best vineyards are those with the highest limestone and chalk content in the sub-soil.
A Passionate Lineage
Bodegas Ponce is a small family run bodega heads up by Juan Antonio Ponce. The family began bottling their own wines in 2005, after generations of traditional grape-growing that continues today. All Ponce’s grapes are old vine Bobal, averaging 50, but up to 85 yrs old, and are planted at an altitude of 700 meters and higher. Only traditional methods are used in the winery with the adoption of biodynamic techniques. At Bodegas Ponce, the grapes are vinified separately and each wine is made with grapes from a certain plot, each representing a different terroir, with its own personality.
