OUR VINEYARDS

Bodegas Mazas grows 140 hectares of our own vineyard, from which we only make wine from the best selection of our oldest bush vines. These vines have been selected for their genetic material, the soil, the very small production and the high quality of the grapes they grow. The average age of these vineyards is 40 years old, however, the oldest vineyard was planted in 1940.

Our vineyard is strategically located following the course of the Duoro river in Castilla y León , where we are from and where our wine is made. The surrounding environment is of a poor soil landscape where traditionally, vines are planted giving as a result grapes of the highest quality. To this condition, we need to add the low precipitations in the area, less than 400 litres per meter every year being June and July the driest months. The altitude where the vineyards are, ranges from 700 to 800 meters above sea level, making the temperature during winters to be very low and prevent the plants from diseases. On the other hand, during summer the temperature varies a lot between day and night increasing the aromatic intensity of the grapes.
