The Matasnos vineyards are located in Peñaranda de Duero, Burgos, 18 kilometres from Aranda del Duero in the direction of Soria, on the highlands of the Ribera del Duero, 950 metres above sea level.
In this wine region of Spain vines are not easily grown at altitudes higher than 1,000 m due to frost, ripening difficulties and other problems inherent to the climate, so we can say that we are almost at the limit of the natural zone for growing vines in the Ribera del Duero.
Interestingly, despite being at this altitude, our vineyards do not usually suffer problems with frost. In fact, being on a well-ventilated plateau and sheltered by our forest protects us from frost and enables the grapes to ripen slowly due to the great contrasts between day and night temperatures of up to 20 degrees that are widespread during the growing season.
This climate, combined with the soil characteristics of the Ribera del Duero, guarantees grapes of exceptional quality, without which this great wine could not be produced.
Our goal is to increase awareness of the Ribera del Duero ALTA, whose thermal characteristics are without doubt a distinguishing feature in our DO.
