Grapes are harvested from vineyards located on the hillside of Moncalvillo, most of the vineyards are over 50 years old. The main variety is the Tempranillo grape which is gobelet trained and hand-picked during October. Graciano and Mazuelo varieties are cultivated in Rioja Oriental, where Mediterranean climate and limestone soils predominate.
