The winery has 35 hectares of own vineyard distributed in different plots of the municipal territory of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. We are one of the pioneering wineries in Organic Agriculture in La Rioja. In 2000 we planted our first organic vineyard in Alto de Mindiarte. A group of isolated vineyard plots surrounded by a natural wooded environment full of fauna and flora. in recent years our wines have been highly valued in the most prestigious national and international competitions. This means for us a recognition to our trajectory and daily effort.
