The Environment

Bodegas Nabal is located in the northernmost area of the Ribera del Duero, exactly in Gumiel de Izan, which is just the last town, to the north, of the Ribera del Duero in Burgos.

The climate of the Ribera del Duero could be considered “Humid continental climate” characterized by summer aridity, prolonged insolation and good maturation. The absence of rains favors the low yields and the organoleptic qualities of the tempranillo grape. The thermal contrast between day and night facilitates the development of all parameters of grape quality (accumulation of sugars, grade, acidity, synthesis of polyphenols, coloring matter… etc).

It is a region of highlands in which the vines are often planted in loamy clayey sandy soils or roughly limestone and deep pebbles.

The predominant variety is Tempranillo in 80% and the rest is complemented by the varieties Merlot, Garnacha Tinta and Albillo.

The vineyard areas are located near the winery, mainly Gumiel de Izan and others such as, La Aguilera, Sotillo de la Ribera, Gumiel de Mercado, Quintana del Pidio, Baños, Valdeande…
