Abadía Retuerta is located on the “Golden Mile”, a road that is home to an unparalleled concentration of Spain’s greatest wineries, within a distance of 24 miles. The vineyards rise from the gravelly benchland at the south side of the River Duero, up to the north facing slopes to altitudes of 850m, where the limestone rock is almost entirely bereft of topsoil.
Abadia Retuerta is a state-of-the-art winery with an innovative wine making process by gravity with an underground ageing cellar.
Their estate principal wines are 4 outstanding reds, 4 micro-production cuvees, called “Pagos”. Each Pago features a single grape variety and a single vineyard.One of their wines, “Seleccion Especial” blends diverse soil types, altitudes and grape varietals to deliver complex terroir character in a precise, pure, and balanced wine with very fine tannins. An expression of elegance, it won the IWC trophy for overall, “Red Wine of the Year” in 2005, and that was before the vines reached full maturity.
