Vineyards

EARTH, GRAPE VINES, WATER, SKY

Earth

The essence of our wines comes from the bowels of the Riojan lands, from our vines. This heritage is the starting point for making great wines. Our lands are located in Haro (Rioja Alta), on the right bank of the River Ebro, where you can feel the confluence of the Mediterranean climate typical of the Ebro valley and the Atlantic climate. The vineyards are at an altitude of 400-500m. above sea level.

Vines

The soil type, gentle climate (mean annual temperature 14ºC), excellent sunshine and moderate rainfall makes the area around Haro an ideal place for our vines to grow. The main varieties are Tempranillo, Garnacha (Grenache) and Mazuelo.

Water

Winemaking begins in the vineyards in winter, when the earth gathers rainwater and snowmelt. On fine days work in the field is carried out: winter pruning and then later, in the spring, green pruning and shoot removal from the trunks. In August and September bunches are tested for ripeness to find the perfect moment to begin harvesting.

Sky

The grape grower has one eye on the sky in summer: for heat to ripen berries and for water, always welcome - unless it’s a hailstorm. The year’s entire grape production is harvested in October. From then on the work goes on inside the bodega.
