Since 1963, this winery has produced estate-grown wines from the town of Muel in Cariñena. The Garnacha vines average in age from 25-30 years yielding mature fruit and deep Garnacha (Grenache) flavors, and yields area kept low . Jancis Robinson has described Manuel Piquer Guimera's wine as 'soft and easy...with a bit of real interest'. No oak is used , as the fruit from the old vines has a lovely delicacy he wants to preserve.

Piquer Valdetome

The DO is centred on the town of Rueda, in the province of Valladolid about 170 km northwest of Madrid. The land is a flat high plain at an altitude of between 600 and 780 m above sea level. The River Duero flows through the area from east to west. The climate is continental (long hot summers, cold winters) with a certain Atlantic maritime influences. Temperatures vary widely and can drop below zero in winter (-1 °C) and can reach 30 °C in summer, which is not as high as similar wine-producing regions in southern Central Spain. There is a risk of frost, freezing fog, high winds and hailstones in winter/spring. On the other hand there is only a very small possibility of drought. Normally it rains in spring and autumn, with an average rainfall of 400 mm/year, while the vines receive 2,700 hours of sunlight per year. Close to the River Duero the soils are alluvial with a high lime content (max 24%). To the south the topsoil is brown and sandy with a gravel and clay subsoil. Drainage is good, has a rich iron content and is easy to plough.
