More than 4.000 hectares of vineyards owned by the cellar

The vineyards are located in Campo de Criptana, a local community of 33.000 hectares of extension, of which 16.000 hectares are vineyards. Currently the partners have 4,000 hectares of vineyards.
Campo de Criptana is located 300km from the Mediterranean Sea, 150km from Madrid, the capital city, and in the geographical axis between La Mancha provinces.



Great diversity

Vineyards are nestled in large extensions of flat land, with light hills and dominated by sandy and reddish clay soils, with a high percentage of limestone.
Due to the large extension of vineyards, the training methods are both bush and spalliera methods, depending on the varietal characteristics and the age of the vineyard.
The partners own vineyards of Airen and Tempranillo, the local varietals of La Mancha. In the last two decades, the partners have introduced Macabeo, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

Campo de Criptana enjoys a continental climate

La Mancha enjoys a continental climate with extreme temperatures and low rainfall levels. This climate, in addition to 3.000 hours of sunshine, allows grapes to ripen in an optimum manner, thus enhancing the intensity of flavor and aroma concentration.
An optimal ripening, the suitability of the land and the winegrowers´ awareness for their vineyards, are harmonized to give good grapes of Airen and Tempranillo and Verdejo addition, Syrah and Petit Verdot.
