Dominio de Fontana produces superb single estate wines from the DO Uclés, Central Castile. The estate is located in one of the most northern and highest areas of Central Castile, with the vineyards situated at 700 to 900 metres above sea level. The ideal growing conditions at this altitude produce wines of great purity, freshness and varietal expression. The estate is managed as an integrated ecosystem, which includes hundreds of century old Quercus oak trees, and the vines are cultivated sustainably. 50% of the vineyard is grown organically and Dominio de Fontana is working towards 100% in 2019. These are authentic wines with a sense of place and a distinctive Spanish personality.
This wine is produced exclusively from the selected parcels of Santa Cruz & Cueva in the Dominio de Fontana estate; in DO Uclés, Central Castile. Both parcels are certified organic from the 2016 vintage. These high-altitude vines are sustainably cultivated, without the use of pesticides and minimal organic treatments are employed. Each variety is carefully managed according to the different soils and growing conditions, in order to achieve perfectly balanced vines.
