Viña Gravonia wines come from the Zaconia vineyard, named after a local term for the area. Historically these wines were called Viña Zaconia, except when our founder made sweet white wines using “noble rot” (botrytis cinerea), which he called Sauternia after the French Sauternes.
The vineyard is 200 metres from the bodega and close to the banks of the river Ebro, and was bought by the founder. Situated at an altitude of 340m, the average age of vines is 45 years. The south-facing slopes are poor and stony, and roots are forced to go deep, hence grapes have balanced biological composition and ripen with complex flavors. The white soils are perfect for white grapes, and all 24 acres of this vineyard are under Viura vines.
