SURFACE AREA:
27 hectares.

YIELD IN KG/HECTARE:
6,000 kg per hectare.

TERRAIN:
The vineyard is two kilometres from the River Duero. It is planted on a plot with two orientations, a south-facing stretch and another one facing east, both with a slope of more than 4%.

ALTITUDE:
805 – 825 m

TERROIR:
Predominance of clay-loam soils, with a high percentage of limestone at the top of the slopes. Soils are quite shallow at the top with a rocky bottom at a depth of about one metre. At the bottom, the soil is much deeper, due to runoff sediment build up over the years. It is currently being converted into an organic vineyard.
