Year rated as very good by the Rioja Regulatory Council. Despite suffering a slight frost in mid-April and a hailstorm at the beginning of July which caused some damage to “Viña Tondonia”, the harvest obtained in the 2006 vintage in all our vineyards was slightly higher than that of 2005. As in 2005, in 2006 there was an advance in the sprouting of the vineyard which was maintained throughout the entire vegetative cycle, until the harvest that began on September 25 in “Viña Gravonia” with the white varieties, on October 2 in “Viña Tondonia” for the red varieties. The grapes were harvested normally, despite the light but persistent rain that fell during those days and did not have a negative impact on the quality of the harvest, which for us was very good, thanks to the excellent health of the bunches that arrived on those dates. The grapes entered the winery very healthy, with an average grade of 12.8, very balanced and with a good concentration of coloring matter, characteristics that are essential to produce wines with a vocation for aging, as are all those of our House.
