Denominacion de Origen

D.O. Cebrebos


All of Aurelio's vineyards are located in Navatalgordo, in the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. Valley of the Alto Alberche, in the province of Avila.


100% Garnacha


Estate owned mountain vineyards divided into many small parcels averaging 0.15 Ha per plot. Given the mountain terrain, there is a large diversity of orientations, soil depths, and soil types.

Year(s) Planted



Traditional dry-farmed, organic, manual viticulture. The vines are head-trained and the vineyards are plowed by horse.


Primarily granitic sandy soils resulting of the decomposition of the granite mother rock.


The Sierra de Gredos is one characterized by a high altitude mountain continental climate.


The clusters are sorted, and 20% destemmed. The whole clusters (80%) and destemmed berries ferment spontaneously in stainless steel and concrete vats. Pre-fermentative maceration for four to five days, and extraction is very gentle throughout the maceration. The wine is pressed in a vertical basket press and undergoes malolactic fermentation in 70% concrete, 30% used 500L French oak puncheon.


14 months in 70% concrete, 30% used 500L French oak puncheon.


The Alto Horizonte project is based in the village of Navatalgordo, in the province of Ávila, flanking the north and south banks of the Rio Alberche. The mountainous terrain creates one of the most unique and challenging geographies for cultivating vitis vinifera in all of Spain, which, combined with emigration from the region has resulted in a massive loss of old vineyards, and a total lack of new plantings. This is one of the coolest and highest altitude appellations for the cultivation of Garnacha in Spain. +Altitud is Aurelio García's entry level village wine blending fifty sites from the town of Navatalgordo.
