The origins of the estate date back to 1077 A.D., a time when it belonged to the Santa María de Herrera Monastery. The cluster of buildings, nestling in the shade of the Obarenes Mountains, were formerly used as a monastery, barracks, a school, a hospice for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago and a hermitage which currently remains open, sheltering the winery’s patron saint, the Virgin of the Pear. 

Hacienda El Ternero has a unique vineyard in one of the highest areas of Rioja, giving the vines a privileged location which is later captured in the essence of these wines.  

Tasting Notes

Unoaked, citrus and stone fruit clean and fresh style of Rioja. Crafted for everyday consumption.  

Method

The vineyards, located at an average altitude of 650 metres and protected by the Obarenes Mountains, enjoy a privileged microclimate which is ideal for the cultivation of grapes, with cold, dry winters and warm summers.  The shallow soil originates from a calcareous clay mixed with rounded stones, providing it with richness and aeration.

All of this, combined with the orientation and different altitudes of the vines (some which are over 50 years old), favours the production of grapes with exceptional natural properties, ideal for the production of great aged wines with a unique character that stems from the terroir.
