AN EXCEPTIONAL
VINEYARD

The CLOS COR VI vineyards are located in the town of Moixent, in the heart of the Montesa valley, a natural corridor between two mountain ranges, with an altitude of 400 metres above sea level, caressed by the Mediterranean breezes.

This is a traditional winegrowing area, with vines characteristic of these lands growing side by side with experimental vines (for natural and organic wine production) using biodynamic winegrowing methods.

Prodigious lands, once a passageway for ancient cultures (Iberians, Romans, Carthaginians), and now a rare chance to see winegrowing as an expression of local traditions in an area with optimum natural conditions for vineyards.
