The mountainous extremes and violent extremes of temperature which characterize Ribera del Duero have failed to discourage winemakers, who have flocked there in droves in the past few years. Soil conditions are perfect for vinegrowing and the grapes produced are of particularly fine quality. This bodega was established in 1988 and now extends to 200 hectares of vineyard planted exclusively to Tinto Fino (the local name for Tempranillo).


The climate in Ribera del Duero is continental with slight Atlantic influences. Winters tend to be fairly cold, while summers are dry and hot. Vineyards are planted on alluvial soils and lie at altitudes of 700-1000 metres above sea level.


Vinification in stainless steel vats lasted for fifteen to eighteen days with temperatures kept between 25 and 30°C. During this time, there were three daily pump-overs that each lasted for thirty minutes. The wine was aged in eighty-five percent American and fifteen percent French barrels for up to eighteen months, and was then kept in bottle for twelve months before release.
