VINEYARDS:

Shaped as a necklace, La Gargantilla is the family’s most iconic Garnacha vineyard. Its complex, stony soils are composed of sand and ferrous clay, extending over 6,7 hectares and located at an altitude of 580 meters high in eastern Rioja, providing the perfect environment. The vines (with a minimum age of at least 36 years) enjoy constant breezes in the summer and important temperature differences during the day and night. All of this reinforces a tailor-made, biodiversity project that further strengthens this plot’s natural balance and enables us to hand-pick a strict selection of its best bunches.
