Respect for the land


The vineyards are mainly located along a thin stretch of land – 5 or 6 km wide from east to west – running at a right-angle to the River Duero for some 15km from north to south.

Some vineyards are therefore on the high ground south of the Duero, in the area around Fompedraza and Canalejas, and in the lower areas on the hillsides leading to Peñafiel.

Towards the northern area, the vineyards are located on low lands, near to the River Duero in Peñafiel, Pesquera and Bocos, and continue northwards on the hillsides of Pesquera, Piñel de Abajo and, at the northernmost end, Piñel de Arriba.

The vineyards located on the moorlands, the hillsides and the meadows allow us obtain grapes with different features that in turn can give the wines distinct characteristics and attributes.


One common feature shared by all the vineyards is their “poor” soil – with low levels of organic material – but high levels of lime, which makes it difficult to grow other crops. However, this type of soil means the vines can subsist thanks to their good roots, even being able to survive years of great drought.

The lands are generally difficult to irrigate and so most of the vineyards are on dry lands.

The low flatlands are generally covered in pebbly gravel or even sand. The higher moorland vineyards, with their varied clay contents, have soils that are either white and rich in lime or covered in rough limestone gravel.

Tinta del País

The grape with which we make our wines is entirely Tinta del País, which provides a strong coloration, aromas of blackberries and forest black fruits, a structured tannins and a medium acidity.

The moors produce grapes with high acidity that are slower to mature and fruitier; the gravel lowlands provide very concentrated wines with great acidity; the hillside grapes mature sooner and produce wines that are well structured but have a lower level of acidity.


The altitude of our vineyards vary between 725 metres in Pesquera and 790 metres in Piñel de Abajo, the lowest, to 805 metres in Fombellida and 900 metres in the area near the municipality of Campaspero. Undoubtedly, special conditions that produce unique wines.
