The cultivation of the centenary vines here...
…is done purely in the traditional manner, based on the use of draft animals, Roman plows, and ancestral techniques. This important and demanding work is carried out by my experienced assistants Rafael and Antonio. They are always working enthusiastically, despite the difficulties, these vineyards and these difficult terrains, which they know as their own home. It is impressive to see them work on 45-degree slopes where they seem to defy gravity. The idea of a job well done moves them skillfully and safely down the hillsides.
Paraje (Cru) “Las Jacintas,” bush vines planted in no particular order in 1950 with the indigenous Muscat of Alexandria grapes and other local varieties known as “vidueños.”
The soil is made up of laminated slate with a gorge type orography. The very eroded grey shales and low organic content combined with extremely loose and rocky soil allow water to quickly drain from the surface. The vines of the plantations here are forced to develop deep roots to reach a water source.
