The small Estate has 15 Has in small plots around Venialbo, in the South West of Zamora. Juan Ramon Ramos is the second generation of winemakers in the family. Although Juan Ramon has a degree in Winemaking and teaches courses, he works the vineyard with an obsessive attention to detail with the belief that the wine is mostly made in the vine.
The soil is sandy, with numerous boulders. There are an average of 12 feet of soil until the vine's roots can extend and reach the bedrock. Yields are low, an average of only 3 lbs per plant. The vineyards are not irrigated.
The grapes are picked by hand at dawn in small 40 lbs cases. Fermentation takes place in small concrete tanks, plot by plot, to preserve its individuality. Only native yeasts are used. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration, direct into the bottle from the casks.
