La
Bartola

La Bartola vineyard is on a slight hump opposite La Perdida and has two landmarks which make it stand out, one of the ends of the gully of La Perdida and an old vineyard shelter or guardaviñas which does not hide the tracks of the deer and wild boar that frequent the place at sunrise or sunset, moments of extraordinary beauty. To get to La Bartola you have to make your way along another winding track through the fields of Quel, dotted with reedbeds, almond, cherry and olive trees, a biodiversity which endows this land with an expressiveness which is unique in Rioja vine growing.

The soil of La Bartola
is arid, sandy
and has few stones

The vines of La Bartola are old, standing proud and powerful. The soil is arid, with few stones and a lot of sand, with old clay slabs which break up when you work the land. It produces healthy grapes, packed with aromas and colour like the classic garnacha wines from old vines in Rioja Oriental. It is easy to enjoy watching wild animals such as deer and wild boar at sunrise and sunset feeding on the young shoots or the fruit depending on the season. These celestial garnachas are bold and offer colour, aroma and excellent finesse.

Quel

Proud rootstocks
with underground suckers

The garnacha vine plants are strong, old and tall, with lots of well-formed suckers, resisting the hot summers with no more need for water than that which the land is able to absorb during the autumn and spring rainy seasons.
