Vines

Grapes are the raw ingredient and the factor with the greatest impact on the final characteristics of the wine. Aspects that determine these properties, and therefore grape quality, are climate, soil, grape variety and farming practices.

 

Our vineyard, which measures more than 180 hectares, is located in the Rueda Designation of Origin, to the south of the province of Valladolid. The area has the typical continental climate found on the Castilian meseta but is influenced by the River Duero. Winters are extremely cold, summers are hot and there is a big different between day and night time temperatures while the grapes are ripening. This gives them some unique qualities.

 

Local limestone clay soils are covered with layers of sand mixed with pebbles and smooth stones, which ripen the grapes by reflecting sunlight and retaining heat.

 

Verdejo grapes, local to the area, add their pleasant qualities to our wines. They grow in perfect harmony alongside Sauvignon Blanc, Viura and Chardonnay. When it comes to reds, we have an extensive range for blending our wines. Tempranillo, Syrah and Garnacha contribute their best characteristics to our red and rosé wines.

 

Grown with the utmost care, we limit production and ensure good bunch ventilation, insulation, health and ripeness; all with the great respect for the environment.
