Vina Elena, Bruma del Estrecho de Marin, Finca CQ, DO Jumilla, Spain, 2021

Producer Profile

A deeply personal project from Elena Pacheco and Isio Ramos, encapsulating the very different reflections of terroir on their much loved Monastrell grape.

Each wine, all DO Jumilla but from different old vine plots, express startling individuality based on their microclimate, soil, location and age of the vines. Sites across two locations, Marín and Las Encebras, three specific plots, Mandiles, Vereda, Particiones, and one estate, Casa Quemada.


A single-estate wine from Finca Casa Quemada located in the high-plains of Jumilla at 700 m above sea level. The valley is protected to the east by the Sierra de la Cingla and to the north by the Sierra de Peña Rubia. Its diverse soils are home to 47 ha. of Monastrell grapevines with an average age of 32, planted in vineyards with varying orientations. So far, they have dedicated five years to painstakingly recovering the vineyards. Identifying the textures and compositions of the soils by digging test pits in each of the estate’s five vineyards, as well as measuring sunlight exposure. The soils range from deep, sandy soils with organic matter and very little active lime to more robust, loamy soils with green marlstone, and even sandy, conglomerate limestone soils. For Finca CQ’s wine, they selected a vineyard with deep sandy soils and low levels of active lime planted with vigorous, deep-rooted Monastrell vines that produce fresh, balanced grapes. The northwest facing vineyard stops the grapes from overripening during hot, dry summers to make a wine that displays great elegance and depth.
