Viña Gravonia wines come from our Viña Zaconia vineyard, named after a local term for the area.  Historically these wines were called Viña Zaconia, except when our founder made sweet white wines using “noble rot” (botrytis cinerea) – which he called Sauternia after the French sauternes. Plenty of documents stored in our archives provide more details to this story.

The vineyard is 200 metres from the bodega and close to the banks of the river Ebro, and was bought by our great grandfather. Viña Zaconia has an altitude of 340 m, and the average age of vines is 45 years. The south-facing slopes are poor and stony, and roots are forced to go deep – hence grapes have balanced biological composition and ripen with complex flavours. The white soils help obtain a good tonality for white grapes. Viña Gravonia covers 24 ha, all of which are under Viura vines.
