Our vineyards in Ribera del Duero sit at high elevation; approximately 3,000 feet above sea level, and are planted exclusively to the indigenous grape of the region: Tempranillo. These are high altitude, old-vines with an average age of about 40 years. The winery and land have been in the family since the early 1980's, recently rededicated to the Dominio de la Abadesa label. Here we produce a Roble, Crianza and Reserva Ribera del Duero.
Our family owned property in Rueda is planted mostly to the native grape Verdejo. We also produce a little Sauvignon Blanc in these vineyards as well. Rueda is a land of plateaus, of great plains, of gentle rolling hills, of gravel and sand. Rueda is known for its long, cold winters leading up to hot summers. Our vineyards here are high altitude, 700+ meters, resulting in the freshest and most aromatic white wines.
The Torrecilla de la Abadesa people inspired us to name our wines from Rueda and Ribera, Dominio de la Abadesa. Near there is our Torreduero vineyard, at an altitude of around 700m, surrounded by pine forests, vineyards and cereal grains. It is defined by its gentle slope, its sands and the proximity of the Duero.
