Producer

This winery is a joint venture between Jorge Ordoñez and Rafael Cañizares, who is also the winemaker.

The Tarima vineyards are situated between the mountain ranges of Sierra de Salinas, Sierra de L’Altet and Sierra de la Sima. The vineyards grow at an elevation ranging between 600-750 m (1,928-2,460 ft.) above sea level.

The grapes for this wine come from 20 ha. (49.4 acres) of vineyards planted between 1970 and 1960 on chalky soils with very low yields. All vines are pruned in the vaso system which is an all-natural, almost organic process, with no irrigation. The grapes are harvested by hand in early September.
