Wine from Garmón Continental
In the village of Olivares, very near to the River Duero, the Garcías have set up their first winery assigned to the Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin. Despite their indisputable importance in the history of Ribera wines (Vega Sicilia, Mauro, Aalto...), this is the first time that the Ribera del Duero DO and the García family have worked so closely together. The winery will be known as Garmón Continental, derived from the surnames of the iconic Mariano García's sons, Alberto and Eduardo García Montaña, and it will be the smallest winery in the García domain. The grapes of vines aged over 30 years old come from three tiny villages in the province of Burgos, lying on sandy-clay and chalky-clay soils at around 900 metres above sea level.
