Made from our small vineyard plots that were planted before 1960. These small plots are planted in a square planting pattern with a narrow row spacing that predates mechanization with tractors. The old vineyard planting material is unique in that these old vineyards were planted with a mix of different white and red varieties that were field grafted in the vineyard with a massal selection of that era. In Rioja these small vineyard plots are referred to as “Corros” and this is where the name “Cuatro Corros” comes from. Planting density: 3086 Vines per hectare. Square planting pattern: 1,8m x 1,8m . Limestone soil. Altitude: 400-450m. Massal selection. Old bush vines.
