Vineyards planted on high altitudes to achieve freshness and authenticity

 

Traditional and environmentally-friendly viticulture

 

Family-owned vineyards being 40 years old on average, including hundred-year-old plots

 

Extreme climate of a unique microclimate

Extreme climate characterised by very cold winters and dry summers, a great difference between daytime and night-time temperatures and the high altitude of the Castilian plateau. All these factors make the D.O. Ribera del Duero have optimal ripening conditions for the vine and with unique nuances.

All the vineyards are located in the heart of the D.O., in the village of Villalba de Duero, projecting this way a loyal imagen of the microclimate of La Ribera.

Our 25 hectares are located on south and south-east facing slopes, where the most abundant soils are silt and pebbles.

The vineyards are characterised by the following:

  • All the plots are close to the winery (within a radius of 5 km)
  • The average age of our vineyards is about 40-50 years old, being some of them a hundred years old (plots La Virgen, Santuy viejo and Los Friales).
  • A balance between head-trained and cordon-trained vineyards.
  • Continuous monitoring and tracking of the vineyard cycle, as well as hand harvesting.
  • Great experience in grape growing thanks to the knowledge transferred from generation to generation.

‘The only way to produce an excellent wine is a care of the vineyard which makes the difference from the beginning.’
