Viñedos

100% of Bodegas Care wines come from our own vineyards.  The vineyards comprise four estates, the largest of which are the Bancales and Cadillos estates, each covering 50 hectares.  In addition, Peña Negra and Zagalcerro are characterised by their steep slopes. These vineyards are within between 5 and 10 km from the winery and provide the raw material giving Care wines their strength, personality, and character.
