Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero hosts vineyards located in Castilla y León, within a strip of the Duero river basin, at the confluence of the provinces of Soria, Burgos, Segovia and Valladolid. The weight of history is evident, since they have been making wine for more than 2,500 years, as evidenced by the wine residues found in the Vacceo site of Pintia and the Roman mosaic of Baños de Valdearados.

The vineyards

Our vineyard is mainly located on the “La Revilla” estate, a plot of land located on one of the highest limestone moors in Ribera del Duero, at an altitude of 915 metres above sea level. It is intended for our most singular wines, with a higher natural acidity than in other areas, greater freshness and other differentiating qualities, marked by this altitude.

The soil

Its moorland soils are poor, shallow, clayey limestone soils, which has a positive effect on the grape ripening cycles facilitating, among other factors, the accumulation of aromas and retention of acidity in the grapes. The estate currently covers 60 hectares and is divided into plots to separate the more limestone soils, with older bush-trained vines that provide more mineral, fine, elegant wines, from other plots with more clayey veins that give greater body and fruit.

In Valtravieso we manage 170 hectares of vineyards, of which 100 hectares are located in the moor and of which 70 hectares surround our winery and are owned by us. The rest of the hectares are from loyal winegrowers and the monitoring and management of the vineyard is carried out as if it were our own vineyard. In addition, in the town of Piñel de Arriba, at 850m altitude, is the “Santa María” estate where we have another 9 hectares of younger vineyards, around 15 years old, whose land is located on a hillside, with deeper, higher clay content soils and from where our fresher and fruitier assemblage wines come from.

The vine

The Valtravieso vineyard is in its fullness. The average age of the vines is about 25 years, although our oldest vineyard is around 40 years old where the 44% of it belongs to the initial plantation. We mainly cultivate Tinto Fino as a clear commitment to the native variety, having also plantations of other foreign varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec.
