Very cold winters and short hot summers helps us to grow our vines in an organic way.

Our vines are planted in three distinct varieties of "terroir".

» Pago del Pinar

» Pago del Madero

» Pago del Moral

 

 

Pago del Pinar

» Pago Pinar is the lowest vineyard in the valley, located at 746 meters above sea level and separated from the Duero River by a stand of pine forest.

» The soil here is composed of clay and sand with rich mineral deposits.

» Here the Tinta Fina grape produces wines that are rich in fresh red fruit.

» The harvest from here is crucial in making our lightly oaked Veronica Salgado range.



 

Pago del Madero

» Pago El Madero is our highest altitude vineyard and is located on a hillside at 850 metres above sea level.

» The soil here is calcareous and produces small fine grapes that are rich in tannins and anthocyanins.

» The grapes have good concentration of polyphenols and perfect acidity.

» The wines produces from here have distinct forest fruit aromas and are full of intensity.

» We use this to develop our Veronica Salgado "Capricho" range, a wine with medium oak ageing to give excellent structure.



 

Pago del Moral

» El Moral is a very special location for our vines that are more than 60 years old.

» A local strain of Tinto Fino grows here, one not found in every glass of Ribera Del Duero.

» The soils here consist of clay and limestone with a large number of boulders.

» The soil is dry and the roots run deep.

» The vines produce a small quantity of fruit that is rich in polyphenols.

» There is perfect balance of sugar and acidity giving excellent ageing potential.

» The wine is full bodied and perfect for bottle ageing.

» This wine characterises the quality and ability of Ribera Del Duero.
