Coruña del Conde

Coruña del Conde
A small estate located in the village of the same name in the province of Burgos, was founded by Alberto López Calvo in 1992. In the early 50s he moved to France to dedicate himself to the world of Bordeaux wine and French cooperage. After almost 40 years, Alberto decided to return to his native land to make his dream come true there. In 1990 he crafted his first wines and two years later he created his winery.
The vineyard is situated on the hillside of Alto Otero, in Coruña del Conde, 850 metres above sea level. Its 4 hectares are divided into 4 plots of land, on a clay calcareous soil, enjoying a typically continental climate. Its wine-growing is ecological which allowed them to be granted with the ecological label in 2007.
Today, so as to preserve his grandfather’s heritage after he passed away in 2012, his grandson Julien has taken over the management of the 4-hectare vineyard with as much care, commitment and devotion.
