WINE Finca Valhonta
VILLALBA DE RIOJA
FINESSE ON THE BORDER OF THE MONTARAZ FOREST
Finca Valhonta breathes balance from a high altitude, and virgin forest. Close to the small town of Villalba, on the outermost limits of Rioja Alta, Finca Valhonta is surrounded and protected by the pine forest that covers the slopes of the Montes Obarenes. Due to its altitude and climatic conditions, with marked continental and Atlantic influences, this is the very limit of where vines can grow.
The raised bush vines of Tempranillo stand tall, as if proudly displaying their determined ability to withstand the cold,windy conditions of these highlands. The chalky soils and tenacious vines are home to a rich and healthy microbiological life, which, in natural harmony with the microclimate and location, expresses itself in the unique finesse of the wines of the Valhonta vineyard.
A FINE, BALANCED CHARM FROM RIOJA’S ATLANTIC OUTPOST
The tempranillo grape expresses its highest degree of harmony and charm in the broad chalky-clay terraces at the foot of the Obarenes mountains. Finca Valhonta comes from high, chilly lands with a strongly defined character, surrounded by woodland; a healthy environment and a unique meeting place for three types of climate, Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental which seem to manage to recreate a fascinating world of finesse.
