We cultivate around 22 hectares (54 acres) of vineyards. These are spread across more than 30 different plots.s
We have 12 hectares (29.6 acres) of vines around the villages of Ábalos, San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Baños de Ebro. Here the climate conditions are influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. The vast majority of our vines are over 60 years old and grow in a mix of limestone and clay soils. This is our key area for growing Tempranillo, Malvasía and Viura vines.
We also have 10 hectares (24.7 acres) of old vines around the villages of Alfaro and Aldeanueva de Ebro where the climate is influenced more by the Mediterranean Sea. The land here is composed of sandy soils with river rocks. This creates ideal conditions for growing Garnacha and Graciano grapes from vines traditionally pruned as bush vines. Although ,being French, I use the term ‘gobelet’ for these.
All our single vineyard wines come from grapes cultivated with the utmost respect for the environment.
We use horse-drawn ploughs to turn the soil. Increasingly we apply concepts from biodynamic agriculture to express the character of each plot to the maximum. Any vine treatments that are carried out are performed in the artisanal way, by hand.
