About Alvar de Dios Hernandez

Castilla y León, Spain

Alvar de Dios, started his own project in 2011. He recovered the old vines abandoned from his grandfather and began to make wine following the organic farming. The vines are located in south of Toro DO, west of Rueda, not far from the border of Portugal. The vineyards planted in sandy soils at 750m. in an extreme continental climate, contribute to good acidity and aromas, present in the grapes. Alvar since 2009 has worked in organic, and in 2014 started with some Biodynamic methods
