According to the most reliable information we have so far, the rudimentary cultivation of vines to obtain their pleasant juice began approximately seven thousand years ago on the impressive slopes of the mountain range that the Romans called ‘land's end’ and which occupied the foothills of the Caucasus, east of the Black Sea, the present area of Georgia and Turkey.
Even though it extended in the only direction possible, which was south, towards the fertile plains of Mesopotamia and from there east, to India and China, it was on the shores of the Mediterranean that it would find the promised land. From then on, developed by Greeks and especially by Romans, it would enjoy a privileged position for centuries.
In spite of its rustic wintry appearance, dry and forlorn, its bark conceals a vigorous sap that once the cold season is over fills it with life, providing it with an attractive foliage and a valued fruit that generates the wine—the grape. In order to learn about our wines we must approach the vines that grow in the soil and climate of Madrid.
