The name ‘Cuatro Pasos’ refers to four bear paw prints that were found at the vineyard site when the team were first exploring the area. Following this encounter, the winery now supports initiatives which have helped to multiply the bear population in the area. East of Rías Baixas, the Bierzo DO has a significantly warmer climate. The fruit is sourced from low-yielding Mencía vines grown at 400 to 800 metres above sea level on slate slopes. The combination of vine age, free-draining poor soils and altitude produces wines with vivid concentration and fine balance.
