It lies in northern Spain, by the side of the River Ebro from which the region’s name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of the wines shaped in this ancient region. The variety of its soils, together with the combination of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines that exhibit different personalities, always within the framework that their long-established Qualified Denominación de Origen demands from them.

After harvesting by hand, the grapes are put into small stainless steel tanks. The must is then kept on skins for 2-3 days to extract the colour and tannins. It then begins alcoholic fermentation for 10 to 13 days at a temperature of 26-29ºC. before beginning the malolactic fermentation at 20ºC. The wine is then aged for 24 months in American oak barrels and a further 36 months in bottle.
