Bodegas Arrayán works to restore unique vineyards in the area, where many vines have been uprooted in recent years because of their low yields. To date, two hectares under Albillo Real vines have been recovered in Almorox; planted in 1942 at 600 metres above sea level, the vineyard is on sandy soil of granite origin. The climate is continental-Mediterranean.
Albillo Real is a low bush vine that fruits very early; the grapes have a high sugar content, golden skin and a fine pomace. The vine sprouts early, producing a small amount of grapes and is not very vigorous. Albillo Real has long been used as a table grape because of its concentrated flavour, despite the grapes’ small size. Very few wines are made with this variety at present.
The vines are worked using traditional techniques in line with the standards of organic farming: no chemical are used, and all work is done by hand.
