We are in the Bierzo region. This is the last area in the northwest of Castilla y Leon before Galicia, the land of a difficult grape like Mencia. The climate is harsh, with a large Atlantic influence, very cold winters, with frosts always lurking, and short, humid summers. The ideal mix to express the typicality of the area's grapes, Mencia and Alicante Bouchet.
After working for conventional wineries, in 2012 Diego decided to recover 13 parcelas, 5 hectares of land, in 3 different municipalities. From the outset, the aim was to make straight, fresh wines, and so intervention in the vineyard and cellar was reduced to a minimum. Short, whole-berry macerations, no clarification or filtration.
