About the Vineyards / Producer:
The tradition of the cultivation of the vineyard in Fuentelcésped dates from 1177, the time when Ribera del Duero was repopulated by Christians. Vineyards were planted in the valley of the Nava stream that is suitable for cultivation due to its sunny slopes, and its abundant loose soil and pebbles. After the consolidation of the term of Fuentelcésped, the strains of grapes that best produced grapes were selected and with them new vineyard plantations are made. This is the place where the Díaz Bayo family has dedicated, for more than ten generations, to the cultivation of the vineyards and to the elaboration of wine in Ribera del Duero.
