The grapes we use to make Varron are selected from our Rueda and Nava del Rey vineyards. These vineyards are cultivated using organic farming techniques and they are audited and certified by the Castilla y León Organic Agricul-ture Council.The vineyards are planted in the typical terraces in soil containing rounded pebbles (gravelly soil) next to the River Duero. These rounded pebbles facilitate drainage, reducing the likelihood of fungal diseases. The soils are low in organic matter with a clayey limestone horizon in the subsoil. The climate of the area is continental with an Atlantic influence.The treatments used on the vines are natural in origin. They include solutions made from herbs such as horsetail (Equisetum arvense), chamo-mile (Matricariachamomilla), yarrow (Achileami-llefolium) and valerian (Valeriana officinalis) among others. We also use other products based on plant extracts, buttermilk and other organic products. Weeds are controlled using tillage techniques, thereby eliminating the need for herbicides.The vineyard is exhaustively monitored during the growing season, using the minimum treat-ments possible.This allows us to maintain and increase biodiversity in the vineyard and ensures that the grapes express their characteristics in a more genuine way.
The grape harvest took place at the beginnig of September 2019.The harvest was manually done selecting the best grapes and then they were chilled before pressing.The must fermented in concrete tanks. When fermentation has finalised it has been transfe-rred with its fine lees to french oak barrels (capacity: 600 lts).
