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.
