Centenary Vineyard Pago de la Tejera, Hontoria de Valdearados.
This wine is made of grapes from a beautiful vineyard planted in 1921 in Hontoria de Valdearados (Burgos), a garden of Albillo Mayor vines mixed with Tempranillo and other red varieties, also used to make our unique ‘Carmen by Comenge’ claret.
The soil has a clay loam texture with moderate limestone content. The vineyard’s location, halfway up the hillside in a forest of oaks, holm oaks and junipers, protects it from the frost and constitutes a wonderful ecosystem in itself.
The vineyard is run by Marcos, its owner, using the manual techniques and traditions passed down by his ancestors. Grown organically, each vintage year expresses the purity and originality of this exclusive variety from Ribera del Duero, which is unfortunately quite scarce nowadays.
