Martín BerdugoA Single Vineyard Estate
Our south-facing vineyard is on a ledge some six meters above the River Duero where a chequerboard of alluvial soils: gravel, silt and light clay, offers our vines a wealth of minerals. An average age of 30 years gives our vines the maturity necessary to make increasingly characterful, intense and flavorful wines.
To acheive qualityTended with infinite care
We built our winery on the northern edge of our 87-hectare vineyard to make it as easy as possible for us to harvest the grapes. We are also able to select patches of vineyard where special characteristics can be transmitted to individual wines.
