It also has the most extensive underground cellars in the region and a greater area of vineyards than any other winery in the town: 250 hectares of high quality vines, which supply the winery with its own grapes, ensuring that they can be processed quickly without losing their qualities. Viña Pomal is its flagship brand, which embodies the Rioja Alta's best winemaking tradition. These are exceptional wines that have remained faithful to the classic style of authentic Rioja from the outset.

It was harvested from the Paceta 14 vineyard, located in the Haro municipality, a vineyard that borders with the Basque Country and Burgos, only 100 meters away. A 17-year old vineyard, vine stock grafted with Ribadabia on 110R, 2.6*1.2 spacing. This vineyard is located in a privileged enclave sheltered by Las Conchas. North-South facing at an altitude of 448 m. with a prominent Atlantic influence. It is made up of narrow rows that follow the curves of the slope. It covers an area of 0.66 hectares. In 2014 we had balanced vigour, which yielded small grapes. We carried out early leaf removal before budding and in this way improved the vineyard’s balance, without risking the loss of aromas. In winter and spring we worked with spontaneous plant cover. It was harvested by hand in boxes.
