Spain’s Cariñena region is hot during the day, and quite cool at night. The soil is composed primarily of layers of fractured rock and pebbles. The wine's label honors the soil and the local name for Cariñena wines “el vino de las piedras” or “wine of the rocks”.
Fresh, pure and easy to drink, with notes of stone fruits and white flowers on the nose. Complex hints of lemon zest and wet rocks on the palate. Crisp and fresh, with excellent acidity. Enjoy on its own or pair with salads, fish, or chicken dishes.

Bodegas San Valero is a cooperative in the DO of Cariñena. It was founded in 1944 by 60 growers, and it now consists of 700 members. They are committed to tradition and innovation, striking theperfect balance of traditional practices and state of the art technology.
The grapes come from Cariñena vineyards that sit 1200 to 2400 feet above sea level. The rocky soils radiate warmth during cool nights, allowing for slow, steady ripening of the grapes.
