CLIMATE: The climate is characterized by mild, wet winters and dry summers, with long periods of sunshine.

WINE CHARACTERISTICS: A true pleasure for the eyes with beautiful salmon color! A.muse is light, fruity, smooth, lively and elegant.

HARMONY: Ideal to accompany fresh seafood, sushi, salad and vegetable pies.

VINEYARD: The soil is fertile, with mixed composition ranging from sandy loam to clay loam thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterized by cold winters and warm summers, while a small river called Permisos contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate.

VINEYARD SLOPE: The vineyards are located at an altitude between 450m and 550m and have a slope between 3 and 7%.

VINE-GROWING: We cultivate our vines according to the principles of integrated agriculture, which ensures protection for the environment, the consumer and the people working in the fields. 

Most of the varieties are planted in linear vineyards trained in double cordon royat. We plant all of our vines in densely planted rows, a technique which results in lower yields per vine and, therefore, higher quality grapes
