St Peter's stones and wine
Our winery takes its name from a tradition around a small hermitage, the hermitage of San Pedro, which is located on top of a hill completely pierced by the old family wineries of Pesquera de Duero.
The hermitage had huge stones attached to its side, protected from the wind and looking out into the afternoon sun, where it was customary to meet up to enjoy a snack or simply pour a jug of wine on summer afternoons. He was said to “go to the stones of San Pedro.” Today those stones have disappeared from the hermitage, however we have wanted to recover them for our winery. To recover the essence of friendship, of sharing, of tradition … always amalgamated by wine, by that family wine that has been made in Pesquera de Duero since time immemorial.
The “terroir” that frames our wine is defined by a soil of absolute peculiarity, which does not occur in any other part of the world, conditioned with very high percentages of limestone, together with a variety of grape with many years of tradition and roots, adapting over time to the area, for which they confer those differentiating and particular features. The climate has a moderate-low rainfall coupled with dry summers and long and extreme winters, and with marked thermal oscillations throughout the seasons, they frame it within a Mediterranean climate, with more than 2,400 hours of sun, whose primary character is continental.
