From the best plots in Rioja & Ribera del Duero we offer these two different characters of tempranillo grape: Castroviejo and Condominio. The perfect harmony of the traditional way of making wine and a philosophy of innovation.

The Rioja Region

Chalky clay soils: yellowish in colour, made from limestone or sandstone

deposits from the Tertiary period, which are not very fertile.

The climate for our vines is totally linked to the topography created by

the Ebro basin. Three different kinds of climate combine in perfect

harmony to create an ideal microclimate for growing grapes: first the

Mediterranean influence which comes up the Ebro valley from the sea,

then the Atlantic or Ocean climate coming in from the north and finally

the Continental air stream from neighbouring Castile, attenuated by the

presence of the imposing mountains of the central massif.

The Ribera del Duero Region

The region is characterised by a largely flat, rocky terrain and is centred on the

town of Aranda de Duero, although the most famous vineyards surround Peñafiel

Gently lenticular layers of silty or clayey sand, alternate with layers of limestone,

marl and chalky concretions. The altitud ranging from 911 m down to 750 m

above sea level.Hhas moderate to low rainfall (450 mm per year) and is exposed

to quite extreme climatic conditions; long, dry summers are followed by hard

winters . The climate is continental and Mediterranean, with more than 2,400

hours of annual sunlight.
