The vineyards are located on the southern margin of the Douro River at an altitude of 800 to 900 meters. At Finca Torremilanos they practice a dryland/biodynamic agriculture, cultivating the vineyards without herbicides or insecticides. They consider themselves “Artisans of the Earth”, practicing 100% ecological and biodynamic agriculture. Manual harvesting of vineyards with selection in the winery. Wine rests in stainless steel tanks and undergoes maceration for 8 days. After this time, it was aged in 225 liter oak barrels; 4 months on lees in French oak barrels.

Deep and vibrant wine with a dark red color. With aromas of earth, smoke, and fresh flowers, the wine is balanced between its acidity and smooth tannins. Dark fruits, herbal, and minerality all blend and lead to a long beautiful finish.

About the Producer
Founded in 1903, the 200-hectare Finca Torremilanos in Aranda de Duero is the second-oldest wine-producing estate in what is now Ribera del Duero DO (after Vega Sicilia). The current regime dates to the late 1970s and was instrumental in the establishment of the DO in 1982. Pilar Pérez Albéniz, one of the most respected women in the region and winner of the inaugural ‘Ribera Heritage’ Award in 2019, is still at the helm with two of her sons, Ricardo and Vicente, handling winemaking and sales respectively. It's the first-ever Demeter-certified biodynamic winery in the appellation, as of 2015. A family-run gem that marches to the beat of its own drummer in producing both traditionally-styled and experimental wines.
