Feeling the Sonsierra

Feeling the Sonsierra

The best way to experience a landscape is to step on it, smell it, feel its heartbeat. The visit can begin at the winery, at the Sonsierra Interpretation Center. Then we will go out into the countryside, to discover the vineyard and the traces of past times: vineyard guards, old churches, wine presses, secular companions of the vineyard. We will choose a privileged spot on our outdoor route for a small inspirational tasting in the middle of nature and we will finish the day at the winery with a lunch, inspired by the flavors of the territory.

About the winery

In this beautiful land bathed by the Ebro and protected by the Sierra de Cantabria mountain, the cultivation of the vine and the elaboration of wine are part of an ancestral tradition that has shaped the landscape and the lifestyle of its habitants for centuries, leaving an important natural, historical and cultural legacy.The fields are dotted with prehistoric remains and archaeological sites, many of which are associated with wine cultivation, such as the Neolithic Dolmen of 'La Cascaja', necropolis, hermitages, cave houses and lagares, and wine cellars dating from Roman times ... Here Sonsierra treasures 516 hectares of vineyards that have belonged to the members of the winery for generations.About 1,500 plots with vines between 20 and 130 years old planted with the native varieties Tempranillo Tinto, Tempranillo Blanco and Viura, from which they produce wines that reflect the landscape and the centuries-old wine tradition of this territory. Monovarietal wines that begin to be made in the vineyard, in each of the strains, paying attention to every detail and using both traditional techniques and the latest technological advances to control the highest quality during the process.
