About the Winery: This winery was founded by third generation winegrowers, Moises Calvo and Rosa Arroyo in 2002. They have been joined by the fourth generation with the addition of their two sons Rodrigo and Asier. The winery is located in Gumiel de Mercado a small village in the western portion of the Ribera del Duero D.O. Some of their vineyards were planted by their parents while the youngest vines have been planted by their sons. A new winery was built and utilized for the 2005 vintage. With the completion of the new winery, all movement of wine through the winery takes place by gravity to minimize rough handling and maximize fruit expression and finesse in texture of finished wine. Fruit expression is maximized through temperature controlled fermentations, utilizing short macerations and gentle pressing in low capacity basket press.
