At Bodegas Zintzo we dedicate ourselves to the art of cultivating the vine and making wine, that is, we are wine growers and as such, we understand that it is in the vineyard where the beginning and the origin of a good wine lies.
Our vineyard is distributed across 30 Hectares, divided into 70 parcels. The characteristics of the distribution and composition of our vineyards give our Zintzo wines a marked personality of their own: fruity and easy-to-drink wines.
For our IZENA selected vineyard wine, we reserve the best grapes from the best vineyards: grapes from plots that are more than 60 years old, located in the upper area of Villabuena de Álava at an altitude of 530 meters above sea level. The vineyards are sheltered from the cold northerly winds and oriented to the midday sun, so that the maturation of the grape occurs in the most optimal way possible. Clay-calcareous soils.
