Abadia de Acon tasting

7 November

The Abadia de Acon winery is located in the province of Burgos in Castrillo de la Vega, which is located almost in the center of the Ribera del Duero region, which is famous for its fine wines far beyond Spain.

The history of Abadia de Acon began in 1953, when the grandfather of the current owner, Norberto Carrasco, having decided to start his own wine production, built a winery with large concrete tanks. Skillfully using concrete and wood, he created particularly elegant wines, distinguished by the sophistication and the wonderful fruit ripeness.

In 2003, a new winery was built and successfully combined manufacturability and modern design. Currently, the Carrasco family owns 40 hectares of vineyards in the territory of Ribera del Duero. About 92% of the area is planted with the vines of the autochthonous variety - Tempranillo, 6% is occupied by Merlot and 2% - by Cabernet Sauvignon. The most of the vines are 15–20 years old, but there are 70-year-olds vines from which special wines are made. The brothers José Antonio and Carlos inherited the wisdom of his grandfather; they are very careful about the land and the vines. Only organic methods of processing and production are used in the vineyards. That’s why, the produced wines have a high quality and a natural naturalness.
