O. Fournier Review
As you approach this ultra-modern winery on a lonely dirt road it looks like a flying saucer has landed in the middle of a vineyard. When you take the tour through the bodega, your guide will explain that every part of the futuristic building is functional, whether it be to make best use of gravity or direct the sometimes brutal winds that can can whip through. Grapes are delivered by truck to rolling vats on the roof, are hand sorted, then slide down to the first floor, where they are gently crushed, then down to the next floor into fermenting tanks and finally to the basement to age in oak barrels. Using both local and international expertise, the Spanish Ortega Gil-Fournier family aims to produce the highest-quality wines. Grapes are planted in rocky, sandy soil on three estates at an altitude of 1,200 meters (3,940 feet), producing red wines that consistently score in the 90s in Wine Spectator magazine.
