A singular grape variety
Our vineyards are at an altitude of 830 m above sea level. They are located around the winery in the municipalities of La Horra and Anguix and cover 95 hectares, of which 76 were planted in 1991 and are currently in full production. The grape variety employed is Tinta del País. It is trained on espaliers with double cordon pruning. Each harvest, the grapes are picked one plot at a time. Production figures are under 4,000 kg per hectare and the clusters are subjected to a manual selection process.
This is what the Áster vineyards are like

- Finca El Picón
- 10,9 hectares. Mainly clay loam soils with some sandy areas. In rainy years it can complement the Finca Dehesilla.
- Finca El Otero
