The wine-producing estate lies in Ledaña (Cuenca) in the heart of central Manchuela. Closely collaborating with enologist Rafael Orozco on all vineyard and winemaking matters, the writer Víctor de la Serna built the winery up from scratch in 1998. He planting his own vineyards: 11.5 hectares of Syrah and a small experimental lot of Touriga Nacional, the Portuguese flagship grape. Since then he has either leased or signed agreements to manage old parcels of the finest traditional cultivars—Bobal, Monastrell, Garnacha Tinta, Garnacha Tintorera and Moravia Agria—in different parts of the appellation, from Landete (Cuenca) in the north to Pozo Lorente (Albacete) in the south. A total of 26 hectares, ranging in elevation from 770 meters to more than a 1,000. The vineyards are certified organic.
