Over in Zamora province, in an area of land watered by the River Duero called Dehesa de Cadozos, these Tempranillo and Pinot Noir vines do extremely well. Located in the municipal district of Bermillo de Sayazo, in Zamora, the Dehesa de Cadozos winery is housed in an old 17th Century abbey.
Although it possesses only 8 hectares of vineyards, lying at an altitude of 830 m, employs organic farming methods and adopts careful procedures for selecting the best grapes and in production, yet this newly-founded winery, which started up in 2003, succeeds every year in producing wines that are full of nuances with an absolutely superb personality. They make splendid blends using both varieties and a single varietal wine, which has set the pulses racing among enthusiasts, that only appears in years when the harvest is deemed suitable.
The wine-making team consists of the oenologists Alvin Miranda (Chilean) and Carlos Berian, and benefits from the collaboration of Ignacio de Miguel.
