Hacienda La Serrata S.L. (Bodegas Francisco Gomez), Villena - Alicante (Spain)
Francisco Gómez saw in these lands the very thing he had been seeking for many years - a perfect setting where he could fulfil his dreams. They provided him with an outstanding site to establish modern wineries in which his principles of high quality, sustainability and concern for the natural environment could be given top priority.
In doing so, he took over from the ancient La Serrata winery where wine had been made as far back as the 18th century. He then carried out the necessary renovations to turn it into a shining example of what can be achieved in Alicante in the field of agricultural production and innovation. The farm, which covers over 3,500 hectares - 250 of vines and 350 of olive groves – is today a modern industrial concern which is performing the same work it did a thousand years ago. Tradition and Revolution go hand in hand. They are the two sides of the same coin.
The cornerstones of the Bodegas Francisco Gómez winery are:
Quality: The production of top-end wines and olive oils.
Care for the natural environment: Transmitting all that is good about our time-honoured wine and oil-making Mediterranean traditions to the market, under the seal of organic agriculture certification.
Sustainability: Recovering and maintaining the territory. Seeking to be a national leader in the supply of quality products of maximum prestige and to foster economic and social development in the region.
