Villacreces covers 110 hectares, 64 of them under vines. It stands on a meander of the Duero River, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero’s “Golden Mile”. The estate is divided into 15 plots of Tinto Fino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst century-old pine trees. These contribute to both the beauty and the ecology of the vineyards.


Finca Villacreces is a single estate which benefits from the wide variety of soils found within it. These can be sandy, close to the pine forests, or alluvial and stony, dominated by larger pebbles deposited by the Duero. The poor soil naturally guarantees low yields, which average 4000 kg per hectare.

The bodega is situated at 700 metres above sea-level. Its climate is one of extremes, including significant temperature variations, long winters and dry summers with low rainfall. Nevertheless, the microclimate provided by the surrounding pine forest protects the estate from the worst weather conditions.


Winemaking focusses on quality. The vineyards naturally only achieve yields of under 2 kg per vine. Additionally, integrated cultivation is practised, both to control and maintain the vines' natural state, and to produce wines with personality and typicity.
