An ideal land for the vine
El Bierzo is a large tectonic basin watered by numerous rivers and surrounded by a mountain range that protects and delimits it geographically.
It has geographical, morphological and climatological characteristics that, together, make it a unique area, with great contrasts between the mountain and the valley.

The vineyards are located on terraces next to rivers and to lands with an average altitude between 450 and 1,000 meters.

The microclimate, without large fluctuations throughout the year, halfway between the continental and Atlantic climate, significantly benefits the cultivation of the vine.
