As we harvest old and ancient vineyards (bush vines), there is no possibility to mechanize harvest and therefore all our grapes are hand-picked, which is also a perfect way to guarantee the highest quality.

In Bierzo, the altitude is one of the key factors that defines the characteristics of our grape varieties (the different types of soils are another important factor). Bierzo is a main valley with lateral valleys that offer an incredible diversity of conditions influencing the same grape varieties. A natural wealth that may produce from floral wines up to more complex and mineral ones.

Prefermentative cold maceration during 3-5 days. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel as well as concrete tanks for 26 days and another 14 days for the malolactic fermentation.

12 months in French oak barrels.

Food pairing
