Sustainably and organically farmed
Abadía de Acón is a family-run winery located in the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, in Castrillo de la Vega, Burgos. The original cellar, hewn out of rocky clay, is one of the deepest and largest in Castrillo de la Vega and was constructed by Norberto Carrasco. Today his grandson Jose Antonio Carrasco is in charge of the wines from this space-age looking bodega that emerges from the hillside, half of it buried underground and half of it visible. His wines are robust, mouth-wateringly intense and made from Tempranillo (Tinta Fino) with a very small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon going into the Reserva.
Acón’s 33 hectares of vineyards are nourished exclusively with organic fertilisers (manure from local sheep to avoid foreign diseases). Although they are not certified organic they refrain from using herbicides or any other aggressive treatments in the vineyards.
