A unique 1.8-hectare estate with hundred-year-old Macabeo vineyards

Vineyards: Unique 1.8-hectare estate with very old Macabeo vines. The estate was planted in two phases; firstly, 0.44 hectares were planted in 1917, and the remaining 1.36 hectares were planted in 1955. The vine training system used for the strains is goblet training. In 2006, the vineyard was able to recover after many years of abandonment. In 2013, a massive selection of the best strains planted in 1917  was made in order to repopulate some of the areas of the estate.
