Sierra de la Demanda

Sierra de la Demanda is one of the most fascinating unknown territories of the Rioja region, and a place that produces wines of longevity, precision and minerality.  These are among the oldest Garnacha vines of Rioja, planted on north-facing vineyards which experience cooler temperatures; this means grapes are able to ripen more slowly, showcasing flavors of greater balance and focus. These parcels are also extremely small and steep, and therefore almost impossible to mechanize; all the important vineyard work needs to be done by hand.
