TEMPRANILLO FROM CENTRAL SPAIN
Campos de Viento,
Our Tempranillo was tough to find, the impossible dream which slowly became reality and now we want to hold on to. Be prepared to be blown away!
The broad plains of Central Spain have held a place in the public imagination for centuries, symbolised by Don Quijote’s mills. Those mills no longer grind grain, but watch over the many vineyards which stretch for miles below. Anyway the wind blows…
A short introduction video to
Campos de Viento
Campos de Viento, the Place
The quickest way to understand the geography of Spain is to turn a dinner plate upside-down. Now, as it lies on the table in front of you, uses your right hand to slightly lift that right-hand edge. The whole of the centre of that plate is Spain’s high plain, surrounded by a low ridge which creates the particular dry, continental weather of the centre of Spain.
Vineyards and wines
Tempranillo, the early grape for a short growing season
The vineyards of Central Spain stretch over an enormous area and despite the fact that much of it is very flat, there are areas with more undulating terrain and cooler soils, mostly towards the higher east of the region.
In recent times, enormous strides have been made to improve the quality of wine making in Central Spain. Campos de Viento is made with the latest technology to extract a fine and balanced wine.
