Extra Information: The winery and vineyards are located in a unique environment under the Sierra de Cantabria. This mountain range is a natural barrier that stops the cold, damp winds of the Bay of Biscay and allows just the right amount of moisture to pass through for the proper development of the vines. It is also an area influenced by the Mediterranean climate, which provides the sun and heat necessary for the plant.
The vineyards are on calcareous clay soil and most face north to south with a pronounced slope along the Sierra de Cantabria to the River Ebro.
These properties create the optimal lighting and humidity conditions for the growth of the vines and the ripening of the grapes.
57 hectares of vineyards with an average age of 48 years. Special attention is paid to the work done by hand in the vineyards. Control of yields per hectare and respect for the environment are key factors in the quality of our wines.
The winery is run by the three children of Teodoro Unzalu and María Felisa Gaztelurrutia, Iker, Unax and Usuri. In 2006 the current winery opened in Laguardia, in the middle of their vineyards.
