The winery has 25 hectares of its own vineyards, distributed between 15 small farms on the hills of the Montejurra, in Tierra de Estella (West of Navarre). These vineyards are cultivated under the principles of biodynamic agriculture, without the use of herbicides, pesticides or synthesis products.
