Chozas Carrascal Winery

Chozas Carrascal Wines

Chozas is a family winery located in the area of Valencia, Spain, being their appellation D.O. Utiel-Requena. The production of wine is not very high, as Chozas is focused on two goals: Quality and Personality.

The López family decided in 1989 to embark on a truly ambitious and exciting project to produce first‐class wines of the highest calibre to be enjoyed world‐wide.

During more than 15 years the López family and it's team have dedicated all of their time and efforts to restructure the old vines, preserving the old Bobal vines while planting new grape varieties including Chardonnay, Cabernet and Syrah. The philosophy of the winery has been from the very first moment, betting on the conservation of the environment. It has taken some years to achieve it, but it was worth this wait given that from 2010 vintage, all their wines are labeled as organic. Chozas Carrascal wants to demonstrate that high quality wines can be produced while caring for the environment.


The winery produces high quality wines in an ecological way, intending at the same time to offer a strong personality.
· LAS OCHO, a red wine blended with 8 grapes, including BOBAL, our autochthonous grape.
· El CABERNET F, a 100% Cabernet Franc made in the Mediterranean area, and therefore with the character this provides.
2007 and 2008 vintage have been considered as the best Cabernet Franc in Spain.
· CAVA de CHOZAS CARRASCAL, Chardonnay and Macabeo, Brut Nature Reserva, something to highlight is that part of the blending is aged in French oak barrels before the “tiraje”, giving an interesting complexity.

  1. There is an old vintner's saying that great wines are "grown" in the vineyards. It is important then, in the learning of wine, to first grasp the importance of the raw material. In this case the grapes. No winemaker can "create" quality. This helps a lot. Thanks for sharing.
