The European regulation on organic farming covers not only the production and processing but also the control and packaging of organic food. A product may claim the word ‘organic’ when the rules specific to organic production defined in one of the regulations recognized by the European Community are complied with, and the operator has obtained a valid certificate for that product. To this end, each operator undertakes to be controlled at each stage of the production chain by an independent third party accredited according to the ISO 65 standard, such as ECOCERT. Our Spanish wines are certified by the regional organization CAECyL, Public Control Authority for Organic Production of Castilla y León, itself mandated by the Spanish National Accreditation Body.
The ladybug (or ladybird), organic viticulture’s precious little helper, is the symbol used on all our wines produced from organically grown grapes. If you want to know which of our wines are “organic”, look for the white logo showing a little ladybug on a leaf.

On the palate, the fruit concentration is well balanced with subtle oak giving a textural feel. Light peppery notes combine with freshness to give a long and savoury finish.
Sommelier's advice: Serve between 11° to 13°C on frog’s legs or a spicy dish like lamb tagine with lemon or chicken with ginger and lemongrass. Can be drunk young but will benefit from 5 to 10 year’s careful cellaring.
