Painstaking work is done in the vineyards to ensure the best quality grapes, and, faithful to Javier Sanz Viticultor’s philosophy; to intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process.
Javier Sanz Viticultor owns 104 hectares of vineyards. This allows the growth and development of each and every vine to be closely monitored.
These vineyards are home to viticultural treasures such as the pre-phylloxera vineyard of El Pago de Saltamontes.
We believe in the land. We engage in sustainable winemaking and carry the Rueda Denomination of Origin.
The vines grow well due to three elements: the soil (gravelly pebbles); the continental climate (with a large diurnal temperature range and low humidity), and the Verdejo grape variety (with great personality, making it perfect for winemaking).
A viticultural process that values quality over quantity thanks to the exhaustive monitoring of the health and vigour of the vineyards.
Javier Sanz’s vineyards are laid out in a mosaic of plots, farms and small vineyards, all within the Valladolid municipality of La Seca.
Their freshness, complexity and balance are the result of the personality of a territory, a cellar and a tradition.
We are the fourth generation of winemakers who have carried on the tradition for over 150 years.
