Bela is produced from hand harvested, carefully selected grapes from our own vineyards situated at more than 800m altitude in the village of Villalba de Duero. The soils are calcareous clay and sandy loam and the climate here is continental.
The wine making process is traditional, with pre-fermentation cold maceration in stainless steel tanks, and, following fermentation, nine months ageing in American and French, new and one-year old oak barrels.
