VALDESABRIL

From the Alto de Najerilla, in an elevated area between Badarán and Baños de Río Tobías, we discovered, almost by chance, these unique plots of old vines of Viura and poor sandy soils partially degraded with limestone chips from the mother rock.

Ferrous sandy, with carbonate veins that rise horizontally from the limestone bedrock that is 1.2 meters deep, and that is mixed with rocks of a sandy nature.
