THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN AREA
EL ALTO NAJERILLA
The High Najerilla, with its special terrain, mid-altitude and orientation, is a unique and differentiated area for the cultivation of vines. The fruit obtained from its vineyards is highly appreciated for the production of great wines for ageing.
NEARBY VINEYARDS AND OLD VINES
The vineyards that the winery manages, the vast majority of which are goblet-trained and all within 6 kilometres of the facilities, have an average altitude of 600 metres above sea level. Grapes from old vines (vineyards with an average age of between 35 and 50 years, some of which exceed these figures and are almost a hundred years old) are located between Badarán and Cárdenas. There is no land consolidation in this area, an important factor in preserving the typicality of the terrain.

- Upper Najerilla
The Atlantic-influenced climate, with cold winters, warm summers and long, mild autumns, causes a slow ripening process that is perfect for achieving the qualities we are looking for in the grapes and which give this wine balance and elegance.
Mostly calcareous clay and ferrous clay, with a balanced composition, slightly alkaline, rich in organic matter, and with moderate water availability during the summer.
The town of Badarán has recently become an ambassador for the Garnacha Riojana variety of old vines, where the terroir in which they were born provides them with unique and highly valued qualities.
Our winery enjoys a privileged location. It is located 8 kilometres from the monasteries of Yuso and Suso in San Millán de la Cogolla in the Alto Najerilla, at the foot of the Sierra de la Demanda.
PAGOS DE ALADRERO, BADRÁN Y LA LAGUNA
Our best garnachas grow in these vineyards dating from 1930 and 1947. Their location at more than 645 metres above sea level, limited load, vigour and development of their fruit, in the heart of Rioja Alta, are the ideal characteristics to be classified as Singular Vineyards, the new figure included in the DOCA Rioja.
