Overview

A step up from the village wine is Marañones, sourced from the hillside vineyards adjacent to the cellars: Olivos, La Ladera, and Peña Baja. All are sloped vineyards of 50–70 year old, head-pruned Garnacha planted on decomposed, sandy granite, gneiss and schist at an elevation between 750 and 850m. The name of this cuvée and the estate itself,  is taken from an indigenous plant, prunus spinosa, and its fruit, Arañon. Arañon is traditionally macerated in alcohol to make a fiery fruit liqueur – a specialty in this area of Spain.
