Different types of terroir depending on the fincas where the vines are grown (see below).
The vines are grown on the fincas El Secadero, La Milla and Montijo.
El Secadero: This part of the estate has 8 hectares of Tempranillo. It is a very cool and stony clay-limestone soil, which has always allowed us to obtain wines of exceptional quality. Great drainage capacity, better health and ripeness, this terroir transmits a certain minerality that makes the wines much more complex and special.
La Milla: This part of the estate extends over 45 hectares with the cultivation of Moscatel, Viura, Chardonnay, Merlot and olive trees. The clay-limestone soil is ideal for white grapes and for the red Merlot variety, which adapts well to the stonier areas, bringing minerality and structure.
Montijo: This is a very special estate for us. It is located in Olite, next to our current winery and there are the oldest vines, from which we obtain our Finca Montijo, a wine of limited production and with several recognitions, of intense black cherry colour.
