History

The first written evidence of wine production in this area comes from the 12th century, when the monastery of Santa María de Bujedo de Juarros (es) purchased vineyards on the banks of the rivers Arlanza and Duero.

When the phylloxera virus devastated the vineyards of Europe at the end of the 19th century, almost all the vineyards in this area were uprooted and replanted by grafting onto American rootstock. By the 1920s the replanting had been completed.

Climate

The climate is Continental, with long hot, dry summers and cold winters. In addition there is a sharp contrast between the daytime and night-time temperatures.

Grapes

The authorized white varieties are Albillo and Viura while the authorized red varieties are Tempranillo / Tinta del País, Garnacha, Mencía, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

The minimum planting density is 2,000 vines/ha, whether planted as low individual vines (en vaso) or on trellises (en espaldera).

The maximum permitted yields are 10,000 kg/ha for white varieties, and 7,000 kg/ha for red varieties.
