WINEMAKING HERITAGE

RESPECTING THE TRADITIONS OF THE REGIONS

Our grapes are selected by local winemakers from the outstanding vineyards of Calatayud, Valdepeñas and Valencia.  Fermentation, blending and maturation of the wines is under the guidance and protocols set by our consultant winemaker Norrel Robertson, MW. In the Spanish tradition, Anciano wines spend time in oak barrels to add complexity and character.

UNIQUE LOCATIONS

CALATAYUD – VALDEPENAS – VALENCIA

Our oak aged Tempranillo wines come from Bodegas Navalon which is surrounded by the ancient vineyards of Valdepeñas in the rural heart of Spain. The bodega has been the passion of the same local family for several generations. Our young Garnacha wine is from the Mediterranean coast, near Valencia and Anciano Old Vines Garnacha expresses the unique and dramatic terroir of Calatayud, in the northeastern region of Aragon.

GOOD EARTH

VALDEPENAS MEANS ‘VALLEY OF STONES’

Each region has its special characteristics – the name Valdepeñas refers to the special soil, strewn with pebbles and larger stones which soak up the sun’s rays during the day, and then release their heat during the night. Gnarly old vines in Calatayud have deep roots to extract water from layers of chalk and clay during the intense summer heat. The land is very different in Terres dels Alforins, a fertile valley in the south west of the province of Valencia and is called the “Valencian Tuscany”. These various soils help explain the unique characteristics found in our wines.
