The Terroir

vineyards-garnacha Las Moradas

The vineyard, covering 21 hectares, is set in unique landscape, surrounded by pine woods, holm oaks, juniper, rockrose and a wide variety of aromatic plants and other native vegetation. Here, old Garnacha vines, pruned into goblet shapes and dry cultivated, coexist with new plantations. The “Pago Los Castillejos” vineyard is in the highest part of the area, at an altitude of almost 900 metres, on sandy soils of granite origin with a pH of 6.5-7.

Vine Garnacha Las Moradas

The soils of San Martín are sandy due to the weathering of granites, gneisses and sub-volcanic rocks, and arkose, a composition that marks its vines, giving them a unique profile from a very characteristic plot.

A continental climate is established on the plateau, with plenty of north-easterly winds and Mediterranean weather and average rainfall of 470-540 mm. The choice of a unique terroir, with vineyards offering excellent potential if the vines are worked properly, means the grapes offer us a natural balance, making wines that stand out and do not require additives.
