The High Plains
Our vineyard is in the Rueda appellation, between the towns of Rueda and La Seca, in the province of Valladolid. The setting is a sweeping plateau at an altitude of 750 metres, stern and luminous, with the extreme continental climate of the Castilian meseta.
In order to take advantage of a wider variety of soils and give greater complexity to the wines, the José Pariente vines are spread over several estates in the appellation. The best estates are on land poor in organic matter, with a gravelly soil, a layer of pebbles — highly beneficial to the roots of the vines — and a clay and limestone subsoil.
