About the winery :
This is an ancient record inwhich the roman culture tied the knot with the land and the climate of thevalley del Duero contributing its ample knowledge of viticulture. Thus, theylaid the foundation for what today, thousands of years later, is a reality: theperfect conjunction of a climate, a soil, a variety anda wise hand that collects this essence inside abottle.
In 2005, theCusiné family, following a long tradition of passion and dedication ofelaborating wines in the Penedès as PARÉS BALTÀ (inPenedès) and in the Priorat known as GRATAVINUM, decidedto initiate a new project in the Ribera del Duero, applying the guidelines setby the first winegrowers of the region.
In order to achieve this we selectedvines that reflect best their philosophy: old Tinto Fino vines spread indifferent zones of the denomination, trained in bushes, non-irrigated anddirected by winegrowers with a distinctive passion for viticulture.
The work in the cellar has a clearpurpose: to transmit the character of the autochhonous grape Tino Fino,benefiting from the best terroir of the region and at the same time respectingthe tradition and the environment.
