Atauta Valley, Spain

Just back from a brief visit to Dominio Atauta and Atalayas de Golban in the wonderful and unspoilt Atauta Valley, the most easternly district of Ribera del Duero, an hour and a half drive from Madrid. Here the relative high altitude, the unique quality of the terroir, the very old Tempranillo (tinto fino) vines (over 100 years for some of them) and the exceptional talent of Chinon native winemaker Bertrand Sourdais contribute to the making of some of Spain`s greatest wines. Many, many thanks to Emma, Rafael and Bertrand and all the local vignerons we met for their kind welcome. Atuata Valley 1 atauta_2
