The domaine

I currently work out of the old village wine co-op in El Tiemblo, Sierra de Gredos. The co-op went bankrupt in 2011 and I rent the building. It has a capacity for making 2 million liters, but I just make 20,000! It is a beautiful stone building built in 1959.

The vines

I farm several small plot vineyards around El Tiemblo. Varieites include Garnacha, Albillo Real, Tempranillo, Chelva and Villanueva. I am not certified organic because I believe that the polluter should pay, not we clean farmers. I don't use any chemicals at all in my vineyards. No pesticides, no herbicides, no fungicides, no insecticides, no chemical fertilizers. I allow all grasses and plants and flowers to grow. In winter I allow sheep to enter the vineyards and eat the grass and leave their manure.

Winemaking

I don't add any additives of substances at all to my wines. I believe in minimum intervention, in order to express the terroir most faithfully. I just crush, press and rack the wines. I don't filter or fine.

The wines

I think others would be more objective than me in describing my wines!

Yes, it's winter here in Spain too! Though here in central Spain, specifically in the Madrid - Sierra de Gredos region - it's not really that extreme. No polar vortices here!

24/01/19 - New Tasting Zone


New year, and a new tasting zone!Well, a whole year went by and I didn't post a single post in 2018. Which is a shame, because I like writing posts, and I hope that some people enjoy reading them! So I've resolved not to let that happen again. I will try to post at least one post per month, even if ...

Just a quick harvest update here. I've taken a day off today, away from the winery, and am just lounging around at home mostly horizontally resting and recovering!
