The wine is very pale yellow with small gold patches and small bubbles that form a clear pearl.

The family winery Chozas Carrascal is located in the small town of San Antonio in Valencia. The Lopez-Pedro family (Julian Lopez and Maria José Pedro) decided in 1990 to realize their ambitious project - to produce high-quality wines from grapes grown in vineyards with unique terroir. The first step to the realization of their dreams was the acquisition of the farm Chozas Carrascal. In 1992, the vineyards were completely reconstructed. New varieties were planted, as well as attention was paid to centenary vines of the autochthonous variety Bobal. The vineyards are located on top of a small mound at an altitude of 750 to 850 meters above sea level. Despite its proximity to the sea (about 60 km), the region has a continental climate. Calcareous soils in combination with climatic conditions contribute to producing wines with great individuality. The first wine companies saw the light in 2003.
Harvesting company Chozas Carrascal always carries out early in the morning. Each grape variety is fermented separately. The company owns 11 concrete tanks and 14 stainless steel tanks. Chozas Carrascal works closely with the Polytechnic University of Valencia, introducing modern technologies in its production. Since 2010, all the company's wines are labeled as organic, and in 2012 Chozas Carrascal received the status of DO Vino de Pago.
On the territory of the winery there is a shop with its own products. Also, tours with tastings and the annual harvest festival in September are held regularly.
