Dominio del Águila Canta la Perdiz is a wine made with Tempranillo grapes and other red and white varieties mixed together in one of the oldest vineyards in La Aguilera, with strains that are over 150 years old. This vineyard is located at 890 meters above sea level on soils that are sandy on the surface and limestone at depth. The harvest is manual and all the varieties are picked together. Once the grapes have been foot trodden, the result is vinified in concrete tanks. When the fermentation has ended, the wine is aged for 30 months in French oak barrels. DOMINIO DEL ÁGUILA is a family winery based in La Aguilera, a small village in RIBERA DEL DUERO, and run by a couple formed by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero, vigneron and architect respectively. Since 2010 we have joined our efforts to make a dream come true… The winery is within the “Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero” and within the “Consejo Ecologico de Castilla y León”, the institution that regulates ORGANIC WINES. The domain's greatest asset is the vineyard. we count with 30 hectares of very old vines, mostly in organic farming, apart from 5 additional hectares relatively young (under 50 years). We are grapes suppliers of some of the main wineries in the region since more than 10 vintages. Our passion is the vineyard! Jorge comes from a family of many generations of vignerons. His studies were based in ‘Soil, viticulture and oenology’ at the Universities of Bordeaux and Burgundy. He worked with prestigious wineries such as Domaine De La Romanée-Conti for more than two years. He has also worked in Spain in the Vega Sicilia Group for a year and as technical director of Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro for nine years. Since 2013 he works full time in Dominio del Águila. Through all those years learning and gaining experience, we were also devoted to the recovering of family vineyards, till we have managed to get together as owners a very high quality vine patrimony, some real Grand Crus… where the ‘tempranillo’ is the true protagonist, living in a very friendly way with other varieties such as ‘blanca del país’, ‘bobal’, ‘garnacha’, ‘albillo’, ‘tempranillo gris’, etc.
