Jose de las Heras

A gargantuan 900 metres above sea-level, in the sleepy village of Pesquera de Duero, lie the luscious vines of Montelaguna.  With most vineyards in Ribera del Duero average at 740 metres above sea-level, Montelaguna is a literal cut above the rest. Temperatures at Montelaguna are significantly lower than those throughout the Ribera region meaning the grapes have a longer period to mature and ripen on the vine.

Rekindling an old friendship and combining a shared passion for winemaking are the foundations upon which Montelaguna was built. Jose de las Heras started the vineyard in 2005, inviting his childhood friend and well known Spanish wine consultant Juan Ayuso to join him in creating a collection of fresh, balanced wines.

There are no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers used on the 300 hectare estate. What’s more, the comrades do not use foreign yeasts, bacteria or enzymes of any description during fermentation, preferring to keep the process as natural as possible. Montelaguna Crianza is an elegant offering of 100% Tempranillo, slowly matured on high-altitude wines, aged for 12-months in French oak and a further 12-months in the bottle.

Montelaguna

The singularity of our wines is established from the first moment by the situation of our vineyard nailed to more than 900 meters above sea level, when the average of the Ribera del Duero does not exceed 740 meters
