Bodegas Fuentenarro is a family winery owned by the family Pérez Garcia. The winery is located in the municipality of La Horra, Burgos, with a long winemaking tradition in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The wines come exclusively from family owned vineyards. The youngest of these vineyards is 20 years old and the oldest 70 years, with different wines produced at each vineyard. The bodega is organic but not certified with sheep manure used for composting, the vines growing on a mixture of clay and chalk at an altitude of 800m-900m
After a manual harvest usually in the first week of October the Tinta Fina grapes are taken to the ageing cellar which is built eight metres underground ( resulting in a constant temperature throughout the year).
