More Information

Vineyards are located in the Segovia area of the Rueda DO which lies between Ribera del Duero to the east and Toro to the west. The old bush vines grow at an altitude of 800m in poor, sandy soils and produce very low yields of top quality Verdejo grapes which show brilliant freshness and excellent levels of natural acidity, rarely found in the grapes sourced from other nearby areas. The climate is continental with long winters, short springs and dry, hot summers. Known as Macabeo outside Rioja, Viura is a light, fairly neutral variety with a floral character and relatively low acidity which resists oxidation well and is frequently blended with more powerful varieties, both red and white. As Macabeo, it is now widely grown in the Roussillon as well as being northern Spain‘s most planted white grape variety.
