Dehesa de los Canónigos is located in the Douro Valley, halfway between Valbuena and Pesquera de Duero, within the so-called Golden Mile of the Ribera.

The Land the origin of everything

The farm has an area of 500 hectares, of which 60 correspond to vineyards that have the European Certificate of Organic Agriculture. It was the first farm to plant vines in the repopulation of the Douro after the arrival of phylloxera in the eighteenth century, with vines from the Napa Valley in California used as rootstock and grafted with vines brought from France by Toribio Lecanda.

The vineyard is located on the slope of a hillside with North-South orientation at 800 meters above sea level, influenced by the Mediterranean-continental climate, which constitutes a privileged enclave for an excellent development and maturation of the grapes.

The heterogeneous composition of the soils and the different ages of the vines allow the estate to be divided into sub-plots, all of them of limestone composition, which gives the wines of Dehesa de los Canónigos finesse, elegance and aptitude for ageing.

Our plots have a high planting density and we obtain yields of less than 3,500 Kh/Ha on average. We carry out a pruning to allow the regeneration of each plant and we hand harvest in boxes of no more than 12 Kg to guarantee the integrity of the fruit when it reaches the selection table in the winery. All this allows us to extract the maximum essence of each vine and guarantee a high quality in the harvests of Dehesa de los Canónigos.

Grapes varieties

The predominant variety is Tempranillo, a clone of Tinta Fina, all the vines are grafted with cuttings from our oldest plants.
In addition, we have other minority varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon -used in blending and also the white variety Albillo Mayor, with high glyceric content that gives personality to our wine SOLIDEO.
