Singular Vineyard

Ico Vinedos

El viñedo

EL RINCON DE LOS GALOS, the cultivation area is abundant of stone layers, both in sandstone and calcareous clay conglomerate. This territory was known among the nobility of the 14th century as “El Rincón de los Galos” (The Corner of the Gauls). Calcareous clay and sandy soil with low organic matter and low cation-exchange capacity. The grapes ripen early due to the texture of the soil and South orientation. The 2017 vintage was classified as “very good” by DOCa Rioja regulatory council. In Rioja Alta it was mostly dry year, with a severe frost on April 28. Only 2.620 kg was harvested from El Rincon de los Galos vineyard that equivalents to 3.797 kg/ha yield. Early harvest on September 20.
