A PIE DE TIERRA, Laderas de la Sierra de Gredos (Toledo Province)

Organic, Natural

David Vilamieland Aitor Paul met back in 2015 while they were finishing their training at the School of Viticultureand Oenology in Madrid, during this time they interned with the prestigious Valquejigoso and Comando G wineries. “A Pie de Tierra” was founded with the aim of respecting the environment and showcasing the local terroir, they work with the Garnacha vines planted among the granitic undulations of Gredos. David’s family farm consists of about 20 hectares sprawling through the town of Méntrida, in the Alberche Valleys. These are old vineyards planted in the middle of the last century. They also work with 4-5 Ha of vines beside a riverbed in the neighbouring municipality of Aldea del Fresno (Madrid).

We are up in the Gredos mountains about 45 minutes’ drive west of Madrid. Climatologically, this is where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic. Hot summers, cool nights, very cold winters. Really interesting micro-climates due to the numerous river
valleys and mountains Granitic soils predominate. Geologically very interesting area, with granite mother rock, granitic sand, schist and other soils in a relatively small area. 600m altitude gives freshness to the wines. Mainly bush vines, some trellising, all unirrigated. Vines are grafted with plant material from previous old vineyards and planted and trained in the regionally traditional way (staggered frame with goblet formation)
