Vines

Location: 3km from El Tiemblo toward Cebreros in the Gredos region.
Size ha: 1.
Age: vines planted around 1970.
Soils: sand on top of granite sub-soil.
Exposition: North.

Farming: Organically grown without need for treatment in most years, given the climate in which diseases like mildew don’t take hold. The vineyards are alive with biodiversity of flora, fauna and microbial life, grasses and flowers are allowed to live and flourish, with only those around the vine cut back. This protects the topsoil from erosion from wind and rain (if any) and evaporation of moisture.
Average yield hl/ha: 20.
Climate: hot in summer, cold in winter, low rainfall.

Winemaking

Bunches are crushed by hand in a manual cylinder crusher and put into a stainless steel tank. After 48 hours they’re pressed manually in a small basket press and put back into tank to continue fermenting. It stays there until bottling after 4-6 months. There are no additives, no added yeasts, no sulfites, no clarification and no filtration. Corks and closure are also 100% natural.
