Terroir Notes: San Martín de Valdeiglesias is located in the extreme west of Madrid. It is part of the Gredos Mountains. Located at a high elevation with granite soil, it produces wines unlike anything else in the Madrid region.
Vineyard Notes: The vineyards are worked manually. The soil is tilled with contributions of manure produced by Bernabeleva's own cows. The only treatments used (only when absolutely necessary) are a dust of copper and sulfur. Pruning is done following the lunar cycle.
