BODEGAS SHAYA The grapes for this...
The grapes for this wine come from 30.5 Ha. (75 acres) of low yielding, very old Verdejo vineyards. The vines are trained in the vaso system and planted in sand-rich, alluvial pebble covered soils therefore many of the vines are ungrafted. Ideally suited to the poor soils and harsh environment in the Appellation of Rueda, the vineyards of Verdejo are located in the west of Segovia. Rueda itself is geographically unremarkable; mainly flatlands, though high in altitude, about 2,300 feet above sea level for most of the region, and some areas even get snowfall.
