LOESS

Driven by our passion for fine wines and applying our more than eighteen years of wine-making experience, in 2001 we embarked on a new adventure we called Loess, in which quality will always be the centre-piece.

We began the project right from the terroir, acquiring six select vineyards in Roa, Burgos. These vineyards are planted in soils classified as “Excellent” in the zoning carried out by Technical University of Madrid (UPM) for the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin Regulatory Council (Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero). In 2004, having obtained high quality grapes, we started making our red wines.

Encouraged by how the reds turned out, we decided to expand our project to include white wines of the Rueda designation of origin.

Loess is a high-end brand of wines of the Ribera del Duero and Rueda designations of origin, made from grapes grown in our own vineyards.

LOESS

Loess, in geology, is a sedimentary soil laid down by wind action. Such soils are fertile, deep and ideal for growing vines on.
Loess is thus a wine named after a soil, and it is a very much a terroir wine.
