Vineyards

The Clunia vineyards are located in the province of Burgos, Castilla y León at an altitude of between 900 and 1,100 metres above the sea level. We currently grow two grape varieties: three hectares of Syrah, and 10 hectares of Tempranillo. The organic composition of this land is very poor, these are limestone, clay and sandy soils with pebbles and limestone loames which allow for an optimal drainage, thus limiting production considerably –between 3,000 and 4,000Kg/hectare. The singular character of this terroir results in wines with a unique personality, only changing slightly according to the subtle variations determined by the soil of each vineyard.

The cellar is situated in the small town Coruña del Conde. It has a maximum capacity for 100,000 kilos of grapes. The harvest is made by hand, followed by a double selection of bunches and berries. Alcoholic fermentation is made in small stainless steel tanks with a capacity for 7,500 and 10,000 litres. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in oak barrels in a special radiant LOZA hall. The wines are aged only in French oak barrels which undergo a constant temperature and humidity management.

We currently bottle 6,000 bottles of Clunia Syrah and 16,000 of Clunia Tempranillo. We also bottle a Tempranillo Premium quality wine from Clunia from a special terroir called Finca El Rincón. The soil on this vineyard contains limestone rocks which differentiate this vineyard from the rest by adding more minerality, uniqueness and subtlety to the wine.
