Soil type

Nature and the passing of time have created soils with exceptional characteristics. Our vineyard has:
1. Clay soil: retains the water and nutrients that the vineyard needs. By retaining them, the ripening of the grapes is slower.
2. Stony soil: stones collaborate with drainage and accumulate heat during the day to expel it at night. Stony soils reduce the production capacity of the vineyard and bring maturity and sweetness.


The region benefits from a Mediterranean climate, with a continental influence and an extreme nature; it boasts dry summers, long and harsh winters, low rainfall (<400 mm/year average) and a large difference in temperatures throughout the year (from -20° to 42°). This results in grapes of an extraordinary quality – small in size, with thick skins that have benefitted from an optimal slow and late ripening period.


Also known in the region as Tinta del País or Tinto Fino, the Tempranillo grape is our only variety and gives the red wines of Ribera del Duero their characteristic colour, aroma and body. Intense cold spells delay the budding of the vines. The dramatic changes in temperature between day and night at the end of the summer create a perfect balance in the fruit during ripening. In autumn, grapes of a magnificent quality are harvested.


Clear, with at least medium colour intensity and shades ranging from garnet red to purple red. Absence of carbon dioxide.


Aromas of fresh and/or stewed red and/or black fruits, together with aromas from oak ageing, at least at a medium intensity.


Balanced, with sufficient acid freshness, medium to full body and medium to long finish. Medium to low tannins.

Montejo de la Vega de la Serrezuela

After its occupation by Abd al-Rahmán III in 939, the Earl Sancho García arrived at this town in the year 1011, when its name was Montelionem, repopulated in the 11th century with people from Burgos, Haza and Torregalindo. Already in the 12th century, in the year 1123, it appears under the name of Monteio, adding “de la Vega de la Serrezuela” because it is next to the Riaza river and the mountain range Sierra de Pradales. Montejo became the capital of the Community of Villa y Tierra that bears its name.

With nearly 100 inhabitants, its altitude above sea level reaches 870 m and in its municipal area are the Riaza River Gorges, declared a Natural Park, and the ruins of the Monastery of El Casuar, included in the Red List of endangered heritage.

The Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero is home to the most exclusive red wines in Spain coveted by collectors the world over. Ribera del Duero is located in the north of the country, about two hours north of Madrid, in the center of Castilla y León, Spain’s largest region. Ribera del Duero runs from the east of Aranda del Duero westward to Valladolid. Its name translates as riverbanks of the Duero. In fact, the region’s vineyards flank the Duero River to the north and south, stretching up to the limestone cliffs where the valley intersects with the Meseta Central, a plateau that rises between 700 and 1,000 meters above sea level and varies in width and depth throughout the valley. Top producers like Dominio de Pingus, Aalto, Pérez Pascuas or Alión have joined revered names like Vega Sicilia or Pesquera and ensured Ribera del Duero’s place in the lists of wine-lovers all over the world.
