Overview

Vagüera is a single 0.5 ha parcel of mixed vines located at 900–950 meters above sea level just outside the border of Toro in the village of El Maderal. Alvar purchased this site in 2009 when it was somewhat run-down, as it had not been worked since 2006. Vagüera (the cuvée) is 100% Doña Blanca harvested by hand, gently pressed, and fermented by indigenous yeasts in neutral 225L & 700L French oak barrels.
