Rudeles Peñalba de san Esteban (Soria)

The large and productive vineyard plantations of the plains of the Ribera del Duero are no longer to be seen here. This is higher, slightly irregular terrain: a small valley, a hill which separates us from the main area of the Ribera, and on its sides an array of 40 tiny plots of vineyard, some with as few as 50 vines. Many of them are over one hundred years old, some even planted before the arrival of Phylloxera.
