Bodegas Felix Calejo's vineyards are made up 100% of the Tempranillo grape variety and are located in Sotillo de la Ribera, a village of 500 inhabitants in the province of Burgos.
Situated in the northern part of the Ribera del Duero appellation, in the highest part of the Duero valley, the vineyards lie at 850 to 930 metres above sea level and are contained within a privileged enclave. The soils in which the vines are grown range from limestone in the high parts (930m above sea level) to sandy-clay, sandy, and pebbly, as the land slopes down to lower altitudes.
The concept of “terroir” refers to the interaction of various factors which contribute to the character of the wine: the climate, soil, grape variety and actions of the individual vine grower. In order to produce wines that express their terroir, the vineyard’s soil characteristics must be carefully respected, and only with an organic approach can maximum expression of terroir be achieved.
