The Ebro River creates four big meanders on its way through La Rioja. One of them, between Fuenmayor y Cenicero, two towns devoted to viticulture, is the one where the 80 hectares of vineyard of our winery are planted. Finca Valpiedra is a spectacular landscape divided into three terraces that slopes down to the river itself, and our technical team has differentiated into fifteen plots, with altitudes between 406 and 427 meters. With a climate one-half Atlantic and one-half Mediterranean, the winters are cold and long. The summers though are warm and sunny during the day, stimulating the production of tannins and other polyphenols that provide body, color and longevity to the wine. At night, the breeze and cooler temperature avoid plant dehydration, and in periods of frost risk, the best protection is to be near the river as we are.

Finca Valpiedra is a single Rioja Alta vineyard of spectacular quality; so good in fact, that the company decided to build a winery in the middle of it to look after its concentrated aromatic fruit. The 80-hectare estate is located on a meander in the river Ebro between Fuenmayor and Cenicero, the predominantly alluvial and pebbly soils, the three terraces of vineyards have a unique micro-climate, holding heat and humidity, these stones, piedra, have a great influence upon the quality of the wine. Here the winery works more along the lines of a Bordeaux chateau than a typical Rioja bodega, and the estate is the only Rioja winery to be a member of Grands Pagos de Espana – Great Single Estates of Spain. Cantos is a second wine that offers a youthful expression of this top-class terroir, whilst the Reserva contains a small percentage of Graciano and Maturana with aging only in French oak barrels.
