Fuentenarro-The official wines of the King of Spain
Bodegas Fuentenarro is located in Horra, the region of Ribera del Duero which is reputed to possess the best vineyards of the region, and the place from which several of the greatest wines of the DO such as Pingus, Vega Sicilia, and Pesus come. The Perez family has a total of 20 hectares of vineyards (property of the family for generations), divided into 10 plots, all located in the municipality of La Horra. Of these, approximately 40% are very old vines dating from 1970. The rest are also mature vines, and are at least 15 years old. These parcels harbor 100% of the variety Tempranillo. The viñnes are 15 to 80 years old and the productive yield is very limited (up to 4,000 Kg/Ha). The winemaker is Sandra Ayuso the daughter of the famous wine maker Lorenzo Ayuso.
