The winery owns 55 hectares (132 acres) located high, 3,000 ft above sea level, on the hillsides near Calatayud.  These are very old vineyards; the vines were planted between 1925-1945. Old vines yield very intense, complex wines but the trade off is extremely small yields, less than 1 ton per acre for the 60-80 year old vines and less than 0.40 ton per acre for the 80-120 year old vines.


There is a range of soil types throughout the region, however most of these vineyards could be described as having gravely clay loams. The clay is at a depth that allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry farmed even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year).


Very dry continental climate. During the growing season there are high daytime temperatures moderated by cool nights due to the high altitude. Winters are cold and scant rainfall throughout the year.

Honoro Vera Garnacha 2012 
Characteristics: Honoro Vera 2012 Garnacha, Calatayud DO | 14% | Named for the slate rich Ateca mountains, the Bodegas Ateca behind this Honoro Vera Garnacha is home to some of the oldest Garnacha vines in Calatayud northeast of Madrid. These ensure low yields, greater concentration and mature roots capable of weathering the arid dry spells that mark this sun soaked region. Deep dark spice of cinnamon and clove collide with fresh and dried cherries to make for a really delightful red. A mouth filling tension between ripe red fruit and juicy acidity carry over its textural tannin to its fragrant finish –while easy to drink, this rich Garnacha is poised for a meal.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, May 1, 2014 (Root)

It is ripe cherry. It has an intense nose with predominance of red ripe fruits (raspberry, currant), balsamic sensations and mineral aromas. It is a fruity wine, very fresh and easy to drink that gives the pleasant sensation of savoring a fruity candy.
