Our vineyard

The family legacy

Our founder, D. Santiago Gil García, is in charge of the vineyard, with help from the family.

The grapes are selected in the vineyard by hand. Only the grapes that have the sufficient quality are taken to our winery. We only make our Rioja wines from grapes from our own vineyards. This is the basis of our philosophy and how we work: To work with low yields and to look after our vines that are our most prized treasure.

We are conscious that work done well is then reflected in our wines.
