For the first time in history, we will be able to enjoy six wines made with the Garnacha variety, from six unique vineyards, close to 100 years old, which have been selected for their special orientation, exposure and soil type characteristics. . We are talking about historical, unrepeatable vineyards, cultivated by more than three generations of "heroic" winegrowers who have decided to maintain the cultivation of these vineyards despite their zero economic profitability.
We have in our hands the wine history of Rioja expressed through the terroir, that mixture of soil and climate, which is the essence of great wines. In this case we are faced with the same variety, the same production system (fermentation in 500-liter barrels), the same aging (eleven months in French Troncais oak), the same wine-growing area (Alto Valle del Najerilla, one of the coldest areas of Rioja) and a single variable: the terroir.
The grapes of six winegrowers have been made, only 600 bottles of each, due to their low production.
