Located in the Bierzo Alto in the municipality of Torre de Bierzo (only recently permitted into the Bierzo DO), Altos de San Esteban is a relativley new project. An idea born out of four friends, one of whom inherited just 3ha of vines from his father. The higher vinyards and red clay heavy soil profiles of Bierzo Alto, whilst different from the more traditional Mencia vineyards, allows for much later grape maturation and rentenion of acidity and freshness. Viticulture in the winery is all organic, with spontaneous fermentations, low and minimal intervention in the winery.
