The wines are produced with the indigenous grapes Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano. This last grape can only be found in La Rioja and represents only a 2% of the total of grapes cultivated in this DO, but a 20% of our vineyards, it is very difficult to harvest and produce this grape, that is why the harvesters say: “Graciano, gracias, no” (Graciano, no thanks).

In the Hoces del Cabriel National Park a 2.500 year old Iberian cellar has been discovered. Our vineyards are in the same exact location of this millennial cellar, we are producing our wines trying to imitate the techniques used at that time, like growing local grapes, aging in terracotta amphorae and using organic procedures: the land, the winery and the production methods are all organic. Pesticides have never been used making the soil to be alive.
The vineyard consists on indigenous grapes that have been growing in this lands for thousands of years, like the trendy Bobal and the unique Garnacha Tintorera, the only red grape with red flesh. All these produces distinctive and attractive wines which are continuously awarded.
