San Vicente de la Sonsierra is in a privileged situation for winegrowing. A region located under the Toloño mountain range, which shelters it from the cold winds of the Cantabrian Sea and with the river Ebro to the south, providing the moisture needed.
A unique climate
This location creates an ideal microclimate for the vineyard. On the one hand, with just enough wind to facilitate the perfect aeration of the vines, and on the other, favoring mild temperatures throughout the year with more rainfall during the winter months.
In this region the best old Tempranillo vineyards in Rioja Alta can be found. Cultivated using the goblet system on very poor soils, it greatly reduces their production and increases the quality of the bunches.
The fields of San Vicente are full of rock wine-presses and other prehistoric sites related to viticulture. And in this area wine was already being made more than two-thousand years ago.
The history of Rioja wine in its pure state.
