Ribera del Duero, Spain
The concept of “terroir” refers to the interaction of various factors which contribute to the character of the wine: the climate, soil, grape variety and actions of the individual vine grower. In order to produce wines that express their terroir, the vineyard’s soil characteristics must be carefully respected, and only with an organic approach can maximum expression of terroir be achieved.
The winery is located in Enériz, a village close to Pamplona, and here is where the wines of appellation Navarra are produced. This winery is a modern construction which has cutting-edge technology.
