In the eighties, before the Ribera del Duero became a fashionable winemaking area, José Manuel Vizcarra Aguado was a pioneer in planting new vineyards. In 1991, his son Juan Carlos Vizcarra Ramos followed in his father’s footsteps and started making first young wines and later aged wines.
Immersed in the area known as “Ribera del Duero’s Heart”, the 35 hectares of Tinto fino, growed in bush vines or trained on wired vines, one hectare Merlot and some other plots with other foreign varieties are the main base to get always wines with their own personality.
Nowadays, Juan Carlos Vizcarra, the enologist, investigates and elaborates micro-vinifications of grapes from old plots.
In 2007, we start making wine in new installations where gravity is used in the whole process (pump over, wine press, run off and rack and return) we remove electrical pumps in order to get intense aromas and soft tannins.
Following this making wine process we respect more our final product. Wines that stand out by their elegance and personality due to a hard viticulture working, environmentally friendly and low yields that make our wines more elegant.
