Emeterio Fernández Vineyards and Wineries are located at La Legua, ancestral lands six kilometres - a league - from Valladolid. In 1997, after thirty years of work revitalising and replanting the land combining modern growing techniques with traditional know-how, Emeterio Fernández decided to build the current winery on the underground passageways and tunnels of the old, which had a three hundred year history. The commitment is to offer a quality red wine with a character and personality of its own, as part of the Cigales Appellation of Origin, an area traditionally devoted to rosés. To achieve this, Emeterio Fernández red wines are made exclusively with carefully selected and hand picked grapes from La Legua plantation, 80 hectares of family production reflecting the character of the area: alluvial soils rich in pebbles with a continental climate influenced by the Atlantic with sharp changes in temperature, long dry summers as well as long and harsh winters.
