Balnea’s vineyards are located in La Seca, inthe south of Valladolid, on a high altitude 2,400 foot plateau, where the soil’s low fertility and scarcity of rain combine to produce low yields but highly concentrated grapes.
Winters are harsh, dry, and sunny (2,600 hours/year) allowing grapes to ripen perfectly. The continental climate, with extreme temperature differences between day and night, is the reason for the unique balance achieved in these grapes
The soil is rich in limestone with a gravel sublayer beneath. Harvest is done 100% manually. Only native yeasts are used. Careful batonages are carried to maximize contact with the lees.
Balnea makes only Estate wine. At 6 Ton/ Ha the yields are below the usual in the appellation.
