In the vineyard

Grapes for Pruno are only taken from Finca Villacreces' own vineyards, from slightly younger vines. The vineyards have a mixture of soils: sandy, grave shingle and quartz. Each soil type contributes t o different flavours the fruit as well as to verylow yields.
The vineyards are planted with about 75% Tempranillo (mostly on the sandy vineyards, which given attractive fleshiness to the wines), 1 5% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (mostly on the quartz and shingle, giving more miner complexity).
Organic practices are used as much as possible and the close proximity of the river helps prot ect against frost. Work is currently being undertaken in the vineyards to raise the height of canopy to obtain riper, healthier grapes.

In the winery

The Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon are fermented separately in small stainless steel tanks. The two varieties are then aged separately in fine-grained French oak barrels (Taransaud and Darnajou) f or 12 months after which the final blend isassembled and the wine bottled.
