La Asperilla,
our battlefield
One of our most significant estates is La Asperilla, a territory that has a sentimental significance for the winery. We look for unexplored lands to obtain different wines, and here, in the soil on which La Asperilla is based, legend has it that, like all of them, it has some reality and always a little imagination, that it was where the battle of Clavijo was fought, a battle that pitted King Ramiro I of Asturias against the Muslims, and that, in reality, could be a mixture of stories from various battles.

But the importance of this estate for us is that it is here that we decided to bet on the red wines of Rioja, where we began to dream of making unique red wines that speak of that landscape at the foot of the Castle of Clavijo.
The elaboration seen
in another way
Proelio's personality comes from the terroir; the character is refined in the winery. A simple space that is perfectly integrated into its natural environment. Large windows on the walls, which allow for work in which hardly any artificial light is used and therefore, a very environmentally friendly architecture.

We only use oak vats, where extractions are carried out in the most respectful way by means of punching. Subsequently in traditional barrels to progressively increase the capacity of the tanks, until ending up in 2,000 litre casks. For the final assembly, the concrete tanks are reserved where the wine ends its journey.
