Finca el Peñiscal
Our vineyard is located on a mountainside with 17.5% slope at 1020 m altitude. The vineyard was planted with the indigenous variety Garnacha in the winter of 1944. The work was carried out with an iron drill and deepening even in the mother rock in an arduous work of two months. The pattern used was Rupestris de Lot, a vigorous pattern to facilitate the penetration of the vines roots through the cracks in the slate soil.
