Winemaker Notes: 

With Contino Blanco, we want to return to the traditional Rioja whites with ageing potential, balance and freshness. A wine that is not overly woody with a predominantly floral and fruity aroma combined with structure and character provided by the barrel tannins and fat from the concrete egg tank.

The Contino white wine is produced from Viura and Garnacha Blanca grapes. The Garnacha Blanca grape is harvested from the San Gregorio Encina estate, planted in 1980 on calcareous clay soil. The Viura comes from different areas of Contino, including the alluvial soils of the old Lentisco estate, the stony soils of the San Gregorio La Tabla, and the Santa María estate. All the vineyards are between 35 and 40 years old.

The proximity of the vineyard to the winery means that the grapes arrive in perfect condition. The whole bunches are destemmed and placed in a stainless steel tank. The versatility of the steel facilitates pellicular maceration for a few hours. After this process, the wine is bled and pressed prior to alcoholic fermentation, which lasts for 20 days. Once fermentation is complete, 30% of the wine is transferred to a concrete tank, while the remaining 70% goes into new and used barrels of different types and capacities, ranging between 400 litres and 500 litres, where it remains for ten months.

All alcoholic beverages are sold in California and the title passes to you in California. The buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of alcoholic beverage products. When an order is placed the buyer is authorizing Boutellier Wines to act on their behalf to engage with a common carrier to deliver the order. We make no representation relative to your right to import wine into your state. The buyer is responsible for the shipment of alcoholic products purchased and determining the legality and consequences of having spirits or wine shipped to them.

How do we ship?

Where should you have your package delivered?

Shipping can take place to your home, office, or work. We recommend shipping to a location where an adult will be present during normal package delivery hours to fulfill the adult signature requirement. The courier will make a minimum of 3 delivery attempts and if those attempts are unsuccessful the package will be returned to sender. In the event a package is returned to sender due to an unsuccessful delivery a refund will be issued for the product, but courier fees are nonrefundable. Shipment to PO Boxes are prohibited.

Are deliveries tracked?

Once an order is fulfilled a tracking number will be issued and emailed to the email captured at the time of order placement.

When are packages shipped?

Orders are fulfilled daily, however, we do not fulfill orders on holidays, Saturdays or Sundays. Orders placed over the weekend are subject to delivery the following business day. Packages may be held at our discretion if the contents are sensitive, and the order timing jeopardizes the safety of the parcel and its contents.
