Vineyard and elaboration
It comes from a vineyard older than 40 years ols, located in Quintanilla de Onésimo winery, planted on cordón royat in 1980. Soils are made with grevel and sand, with some clay areas.
Wine harvesting is done manually in 15-kg baskets. A double selection is made in grapes and bunch tables.
Fermentation is maleolactic in a wood tank and French oak barrels.
Villacreces was opened in 2007, but Gonzalo and Lalo Antón already had Izadi winery in La Rioja and Vetus winery in Toro in 2004. They met Cuadrado family who were then looking for a heir to their estate. After remodelling the winery and working hard to restore the vineyard, this project started.
In the middle of the estate, the winery is built to preserve the natural surrounding, while guaranteeing an exhaustive control of every detail of Villacreces wine elaboration process management.
