Located in Cenicero, within the subzone of Rioja Alta, El Barco has a surface area of 31 ha and is 35-year-old plot.
It is sheltered from the North winds by the Cantabria mountain range and Obarenes mountains. Rioja Alta is known for its long winters, cool summers and warm autumns, as well as for the predominant Atlantic type climate.
This vineyard is at the border of Rioja Alavesa, has a light soil with plenty of stones, and good sun exposure.
All this produces a grape from which a balanced, stable and full-bodied wine is made with an average alcohol content and high total acidity that is ideal for aging in barrels.
