Valtiendas VC

Founded in 2004, Valtiendas is located entirely in the North of the province of Segovia, grouped around the Moors that skirt and wrestle with las hoces del Río Duratón mythical.

The climate in the Valley of the Duratón ranges from the extreme cold of the plateau during the winter with minimum of – 15 ° C, and the heat and dryness of the summer when regularly exceed the 35 º. Also the 900 meters of average altitude (750 meters in the Valley of the Duero) is situated this region on the border of the wine. This translates into a slow ripening with low production per hectare, but also in the complex structure and great nuance of its wines.

The most important grape here is Tempranillo, complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Garnacha. They have only one white variety: Albillo.
