Overview

When the Anton family took over Finca Villacreces in 2003 many of the vineyards needed to be replanted due to years of neglect but a tiny, ungrafted, 1.2-hectare parcel of Tempranillo planted in 1917 in the neighboring village of Olmedillo proved to be resilient to decades of indifferent farming and was preserved not only because of its potential but as a source for replanting much of the Tempranillo at the rest of the estate.
