About Bodegas Borsao :
"With 2,400 hectares of vineyards, Bodegas Borsao is a substantially sized operation in a warm, dry region and as a result, the availability and usage of water is a major issue. Much of its vineyard area is planted with Garnacha which traditionally has been bush trained. Until recently, newer plantings were wire trained for easier harvesting, but because of the greater exposure to sunlight of this training method, the vines can require up to 50% more water. As a result, all new plantings have reverted to the traditional style of bush training to preserve water."
