Grenache vineyards in a harsh and demanding land
We highlight the unique character of the wines from the Sierra de Gredos
At Canopy, we firmly believe that the old Grenache grapevines mark the terroir, becoming our differentiating factor. This is why we pour all our efforts into emphasizing the unique character of the wines from the Sierra de Gredos.
We think about the wines from the vineyards and we convey the uniqueness of each one to the glass
It was in the Méntrida region—specifically in El Real de San Vicente, which is in the southern foothills of the Sierra de Gredos—where we found old Grenache vineyards at an altitude of between 750 and 895 meters above sea level, with head-trained spur-pruned vines on granite soils with ages ranging from 60 to 95 years. Meanwhile, in the town of Camarena located 575 meters above sea level, we found 30-year-old trellised Syrah vines which suited our purposes perfectly. In was in another town at an altitude of 618 meters, Ventas de Retamosa, where we found an old white Grenache vineyard—one of the few remaining of this variety in central Spain.
After a successful search, we already had the primary ingredient to make our dream come true: THE GRAPEVINES.
