The vineyards are located in Rueda and
Nava del Rey area, near the Duero river.
In an historical wine region from
the 9th century
The vineyards are cultivated following the organic agriculture techniques. In El Lagar de Moha they follow the european regulation (CE) Number 834/2007 of the 28th of june of 2017, about organic products and labelling.
All wines are certified and have the European stamp of organic agriculture.
What does it mean to have this stamp?:
It means among other reasons that:
- No chemical pesticides are used, which would eliminate insects, plants, etc.
- No chemically synthesized fertilizers are used that contain heavy metals that remain fixed in the soil and end up contaminating and degrading it.
- Nor are nitrates used, which are products that pollute aquifers: rivers, lakes, etc.
Instead products of a natural origin are used, such as, compost. Which is a product that undergoes a biological composting process and is obtained from vegetable waste and waste (excrement) of animal origin.
These natural treatments used in the vineyard improve the structure of the soil, providing it with nutrients and organic matter and making the soil more alive.
To take care of the vine leaves, plant broths are used, such as nettle, horsetail, chamomile, valerian, among others. These broths help to provide microelements (minerals) to the plant and above all they help to streghen the plant to fight against possible fungi attacks.
All these actions help to develop vine ecosystem, generating life and allowing a natural balance to be produced within the vineyard (between plants, insects, etc.) necessary to fight against the attack of insect, pests, fungi, etc.
Three types of grapes for three
Different types of grapes have been planted in the vineyard, looking for diversification and the elaboration of different wines. Currently there:
Verdejo: it is the typical grape of our Denomination of Origin. This grape finds in this land the most favorable weather and orographic conditions for its development. Creating excellent wines in the mouth and aromatically speaking.
Sauvignon Blanc: is a native variety of the Loire region (France). That has been perfectly coupled to the climatic conditions of the area, adding a floral component to the wines with aromas of grapefruit and passion fruit that are very interesting when tasting it.
Godello: Is a native variety of Zamora. Nowadays is perfectly adapted to areas as Galicia, El Bierzo (León). Tiempos Modernos Godello is a wine that has structure and is very easy to drink.
