THE VINEYARDS: In total there are about 10 ha of vineyards which we work on and use in our wine production. These 10 ha are divided up into 15 “micro-parcels” that have their considerable age (30 to 90 years old) and bush-trained vines in common.
Once again, the choice of vineyards is based on the idea of combination: different types of soil, orientation, altitude, and especially climate and terroir.
All the Tempranillo vineyards are located in the town of Abalos, in the Rioja Alta, where the climate enjoys an Atlantic influence and is better suited to expressing the refinement and complexity of this variety.
The Garnacha and Graciano vineyards are mostly situated on the hillsides of Monte Yerga in the south of La Rioja. The vineyards there are influenced by the Mediterranean, an essential climatic condition for developing the Garnacha properly and for full maturity of the Graciano.
