The living expression of Spanish wines, La Rioja is a region located in a privileged area for the wine production, which is ideal for making high quality wines with unique personality and great aptitude for ageing.

THE CLIMATE AND THE TERROIR

Our winery is located in the part of La Rioja which is situated in the delimited production area by Denominación de Origen Calificada Rioja. It’s surrounded by Tempranillo vineyards which we use to make our wines, by means of our selected and handpicked harvest.

The geographic characteristics of the area have contributed to create a perfectly natural marked and enclosed area which benefits from the confluence of Atlantic and Mediterranean climates which give us clement weather and annual rainfall of more than 400l/m2, perfect conditions to grow the vine.

The type of ground that predominates is calcified clay, iron and alluvial earth which results in quality winemaking with a well balanced structure (sand, lime and clay) it’s slightly alkaline and poor in organic material, with moderate summer rainfall.
