Soil

A vein of slate in Nieva The Capitel vineyard, south of the village of Nieva, sits on a dark slate vein. Its geological origin greatly precedes the sandy soil most common in the region: it dates back to the Paleozoic era, more than 500 million years ago. The Peña Aguda plot is home to very old vines. Some approaching 200 years of age, which for us represents an entire historical and winemaking heritage. Its yield is scarce with great concentration. Our viticulture is aimed at caring for the vines and obtaining a Verdejo grape that reflects the personality of this unique place.
