About this winery
In 1998, the Fuentes Family decided to establish the Finca Río Negro Winery, bringing back the famous but extinct wine tradition since the phylloxera arrived to the region around the 1920´s.
Our State is in the Village of Cogolludo, within the province of Guadalajara, in the foothills of the Sierra Norte Guadalajara Natural Park. The altitude of 1.000 meters, make us have one of the highest vineyards from our latitude to the North of Europe. In addition, with 60 kms to the nearest vineyard, make us have a unique “terroir” shown in all our wines.
Our terroir is defined by extreme difference between day and night temperatures, wind, little insolation but with hard UVA rays and complex soils. Damp Mediterranean climate, with an annual average temperature of 12ºC and 561 mm of rain.
We own 103 acres (42 hectares) of vineyards divided in 30 different plots. Our grape varieties are Tempranillo, Tinto Fragoso, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Gewürztraminer. Only between 4.000 and 6.000 kgs per hectare are produced, which means an average of 1,5 kg per vine. We are completely estate bottled, hand harvested and in conversion to organic. We combine tradition and new methods, hand work at the vineyard and new techniques and technology at the winery.
Our aim is to preserve the identity of the terroir.
