Production Methods

Vineyards located 500 meters above sea level and worked prioritizing the ecological balance of the earth. Consisting of a limestone subsoil originated in the Cretaceous period to 2 or more meters deep. It rests on a thin layer of clay only about 15 cm. This structure, porosity and drainage, is considered internationally as ideal for producing great wines.

Harvested by hand, with an exhaustive selection of the best bunches both in the field and in the cellar. We work with minimal intervention and sensitive to the unique characteristics of this vineyard. The aging is carried out for 20 months in new and semi-new French oak barrels.
