VINEYARD: The soil is fertile, with mixed composition ranging from sandy loam to clay loam thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterized by cold winters and warm summers, while a small river called Permisos contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate

VINE-GROWING: We cultivate our vines according to the principles of integrated agriculture, which ensures protection for the environment, the consumer and the people working in the fields.  Most of the varieties are planted in linear vineyards trained in double cordon royat. We plant all of our vines in densely planted rows, a technique which results in lower yields per vine and, therefore, higher quality grapes
