Overview

Las Vidres is a 0.6 hectare enclosed vineyard located in Villadepera, just a few miles from the border is Portugal. With a gentle, southeastern exposure, this site is planted with 80-90 year old Doña Blanca rooted in volcanic soils – sandy decomposed grey and white schist with plenty of mica. Las Vidres is a profoundly terroir-driven wine with an intense minerality and freshness. This site is being brought back to life by Alvar so quantities are small – only a single 350L barrel was made in 2016 but with time there should be more Las Vidres available.
