All the grapes come from very old vines planted in bush formation between 1931 and 1963 in Briones. The vineyards are located in slopes facing South and South-west with low-yielding clay and calcareous soils, at an altitude of 550 metres. Almost all of them are Tempranillo, one of the grape varieties that best reflects the particular conditions of each parcel. We also work with a small vineyard planted with Graciano, a very hard-to-grow grape variety which is a great companion to Tempranillo for its tannins and vivacity. The picking is made by hand, using small boxes that will take the bunches to the vinification room without any damage to the fruit. Every single bunch of grapes is placed on the sorting table, where we inspect them all for quality and reject any which are not in a perfect state of ripeness or health. Read less
