Located in the Spanish region of Tierra de Castilla, our estate in Malpica is the largest family-owned vineyard in a single-estate across Europe. Our vineyards are nestled in the ancient riverbeds of the Tajo River, 500 meters above sea level and surrounded by the Toledo hills and Gredos mountain range. Mineral-rich clay, limestone soils and a sunny climate all year-round provide ideal conditions for growing high quality and flavor-rich grapes.
