cantaburros

a family project, a spectacular wine

FROM HOBBY TO LIFESTYLE

It started out as a leisure activity and ended up being a lifestyle.

When we planted a small vineyard in the early 1990s, no one had imagined how extensive an adventure it would become.

We started out with 10 hectares, and quickly acquired an abundance of work hours and experience.

Then we added another 10 hectares, the winery, and as we grew larger, our own awareness of organic viticulture and our responsibility towards the environment also increased.

A RIVER, A DONKEY AND A FEW ACRES OF LAND

Poor, dry, calcareous and covered with stones, the ground didn`t seem too convincing, but since there according to history had once grown vine, we adventured into viticulture. Vine is one of the few plants that seem to adapt well to the particular weather conditions of the Ribera del Duero area; freezing winters, very hot summers, cold nights and warm and sunny during daytime.

Rough and rustic as the name of our location, Cantaburros (singing donkeys) also seemed the right name for a wine produced under such conditions, Cantaburros became our bet and that our wine falls into good taste is a privilege.

The universe is too full of stars."

Un rio, un burro y una era abandonada

Árido, calizo, seco y repleto de cantos, el terreno no inspiraba mucha confianza pero como en su día hubo un viñedo, nos aventuramos.

 

La vid será de los pocos cultivos que se adapta tan bien a la particular climatología de la Ribera del Duero; gélidos inviernos, veranos sofocantes, noches frías y días calientes.

 

Rudo y rústico, el paraje llamado Cantaburros parecía también un nombre idóneo para un vino fruto de tales condiciones.

 

Cantaburros fue nuestra apuesta en todos los sentidos y que nuestro vino guste a la gente es nuestro privilegio.
