Dehesa de Luna, before the confiscation of Mendizábal, was part of an estate of 15,000 hectares and a part of this large estate was called Purgapecados. Here was Saint Teresa of Jesus on February 16, 1,580. She passed by on her trip from Malagón to Villanueva and tired of the trip spent the night in these lands. Popular tradition tells us that he drank the wine from these vineyards and, with it, revitalized body and spirit to continue his journey the next day. As a tribute to this story and to such an illustrious traveler, Dehesa de Luna created the Purgapecados wine, also in honor of some lands that centuries ago already produced quality wines.

Purgapecados 2016 is the fifth vintage of the most different wine in the winery. It is born from a plot of a single hectare of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, driven in a vertical axis that provides a ventilated and illuminated microclimate in the leaves and clusters. In this way, direct exposure to the sun of the clusters is avoided, conditions necessary in viticulture of warm climate to obtain quality grapes.  

Purgapecados 2016 is a parcel wine that has been aged for 18 months in 225-liter French oak barrels and has remained in the bottle for 18 months. According to José Luis Asenjo, technical director of the winery, "from the choice of the plot, variety, pattern, driving system, to winemaking and aging, we have been making success after success with this wine."

The Purgapecados label also makes it a different wine. It is one of the most original on the market and was designed following the style of Dymo labeling tapes, a way of demonstrating that the important thing is inside the bottle.
