(2010 Vintage) Location: The winery and vineyards are located in the town of Quintanamanvirgo, south of Burgos, between the towns of Roa and Guzman. Quintanamanvirgo is a small town with a population of 106 people. The Torremoron winery supports most of the families in this small town.
Vineyards: 500 acres of old Tempranillo vines.
Soil: Limestone and sandy soils that allow the roots to go deep and enjoy good water drainage.
Climate: Continental/Atlantic; hot days and cool nights with moderate rainfall. This climate allows the grapes to ripen during the day, and at night the low temperatures halt the ripening process. The grapes take longer to ripen here than in many other areas in Spain, which results in bigger wines with more structure, color and fruit.
