Vineyard.

The Alvarez de Toledo family have cultivated vines in Bierzo since the 15th century. The vineyards are located in the “Gold Mile” of El Bierzo’s wine region. This superbly orientated terrain has the best soils of the entire area and surrounds the towns of Villafranca del Bierzo and Valtuille de Arriba.

The land, recognized as a World Heritage Site and World Biosphere Reserve, has a unique microclimate well suited to the agriculture of the area, giving the vines a special character. Being situated in a valley, the climate is mild and humid. The soils are composed of a mixture of fine elements, quartz and slate. Water flows from the mountains down into the valleys. The vineyards are planted mainly on humid dark soil which is slightly acidic and low in carbonates.

Tasting Notes

Aged 10 months in oak helping express the unique character of the Mencia grape – wonderfully scented, with light yet juicy mulberry fruit and liquorice, nicely structured with age.
