Vineyard: Our Bobal and Tempranillo grapes come from vineyards in the hamlet of La Vallesa in Siete Aguas, located at 830 meters above sea level. These are old vines (50 years) of low yield. A clay soil with some limestone outcrops highlights. Vast horizons of high porosity appear, low in organic matter. The Syrah and Monastrell comes from vines in dry valley of Fontanars, planted in loamy clay soils.

Weather: 2010 was a very good year for early red varieties (Tempranillo and Syrah), introducing a cool spring and heavy rainfall in summer and a gradual entry up to a warm late August with maximum temperatures around 35 º C. The rains respected our harvest and began on September 17th. In Siete Aguasrains were scarce in March and April. Abundant rainfall in May. 180 mm were recorded until harvest date. In the Vall dels Alforins, we had a rather dry year, although rain spread out over time that kept the earth with a good seasoning (precipitation up to 165mm harvest date). Slight problems of mildew in some early red varieties.
