Keep it natural, baby.
Camino de Navaherreros. Fermented and raised in large neutral wood, it is explosive and fresh.
In Bernabeleva, they work the vineyard with a respect for balance with nature. Eco labels are not their aim, although we work to be worthy of them. The wines, produced from autochthonous varieties, show off differences in orientation, vegetation, altitude and soil of each locale. In the winery, they attempt to maintain the virtues of the raw material we obtain from the vineyard.
Their wines express the characteristics of the vineyards and their surroundings, and their viticulture is in tune with its environment, for they understand it is the only way to work.
They own 35 hectares of old vines- mainly garnacha and albillo - with some moscatel de grano menudo and red morenillo. Some other different varieties are found in the vineyard, since replacements were done with available plants.
Their soils are tawny sands formed from decomposed granite rock, with relatively high acidity and limited amounts of nutrients. Annual rainfall is around 628 mm per year. Their vineyards have different orientations and sizes, from 500 square meters to 3 hectares, on slopes, hillsides and foothills. Soils are shallow on the higher plots, which are over 830 meters above sea level.
