Dehesa de Rubiales


Introduction

Part of the Grupo Galiciano, Dehesa de Rubiales is a 300 hectare estate in the Vino de la Tierra area Valdevimbre in Castilla y Leon. So far 150 hectares have been planted with Prieto Picudo, Tempranillo and some Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The vineyards are 650 meters above sea level consisting of red alluvial soils with a high stone content. Preito picudo is native to the area and so called because of the shape of the bunches of grapes which are compact and oval. Originally this grape was used for rose wines but the group believe there is great potential for it in red wines.
