The winery is located near Briones in the heart of Rioja Alta and belongs to a family with one of the longest traditions in Rioja winemaking. The winemaker has access to some of the finest wines in Rioja.

The vineyards are located on clay and limestone soils in Rioja Alta around Fuenmayor, Briones and Haro with an average age of 35 years for the vines. Grapes were hand-picked in early October when conditions were dry and
temperatures steady, between 18 - 20o C. Careful selection then took place to ensure the best possible juice. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks with the temperature regulated at 14 - 16o C. The wine sees no oak.
