Vineyard Vineyards are situated between approximately 300 and 600 metres altitude. A high percentage of small plots of less than 1 ha. The owners of these plots are middle-aged and use both traditional and modern technological cultivation methods. The average age of vines is 25 years. Yield between 46-47 hl/ha.
Soil type Although Rioja is a small region, it has heterogeneous soils with a balanced structure, alluvial terrains with a harmonic composition of sand, lime and clay, rounded stones and slightly alkaline with active limestone between 7% and 15%. Little organic materials and nitrogenous substances. Low level of nutritional elements and low hydric availability during the Summer.
