Currently, we have 20 hectares of our own vineyards, with grapes of the varieties Tempranillo and Verdejo; and we control 12 hectares of 80 years old vineyards with grapes of the variety Prieto Picudo.
Vineyards are located on sites with high temperatures during the months of July and August, and with clay soils; there are abrupt changes between the day and night temperature, and the soil receives a low amount of water. The result is well-structured wines, with optimal alcoholic content and intense colour.
With this raw material, for their elaboration, modern techniques are combined with the traditionof decades, obtaining wines of a maximum quality.
