Daniel Ramos and Pepi San Juan saw the vineyards from Cebreros in year 2005 withthe aim to start a new project called Daniel Ramos. They wanted to show the bestof the grapes from the area of Cebreros in his wines. They started to make some wineexperiments in harvest 2005, continuing the year after. During 2007 they decided thatthe project had to grow so they bought 4,5 hectares of selected vineyards planted indiferent type of soils and situated at diferent altitudes, situated in the south facingmountain of Cebreros. All of them were very old Garnacha vineyards gobelet trained.During the 2008 harvest they started new adventures going out from the Cebrerosvineyards and locating diferent sites at El Barraco and El Tiemblo.The project, Daniel Ramos, makes wines that show the personality of the diferentsoils, varieties (Garnacha, Sauvignon Blanc y Albillo Real) and terroirs of where thevineyards are planted: these are the Zerberos Finca wines. The project doesn’t want toforget the traditional winemaking in the area, using the concrete, clay and wood: theseare the Κπ wines.In the area of Cebreros (Garnachas de Gredos) we work with two types of soils, graniticsandy soils and slate schist for the Garnacha vineyards. Our granitic sandy soilvineyards are situated between 800 and 1000 metres high. These are old vineyardsaround 100 years old, at the site of Llano Toledo. The Garnachas planted in the slateschist vineyards are over 50 years old, and another two are over 100 years old. They areall planted between 850 and 950 metres high. These are four plots called: El Gato,Galayo Alto, Galayo Bajo y La Movida.Our white wines are made with grapes bought to some vignerons from Cebreroswinemaking region, and they are all planted on granitic sandy soils. The SauvignonBlanc is a vineyard gobelet trained and 30 years old of age at Cebreros. The AlbilloReal comes from diferent vineyards from the Albeche River Valley. All these vineyardsare also gobelet trained and are over 80 years old.Daniel Ramos has his own winery since june 2013 at the town of El Tiemblo. Inthis way they can make the wines in such a way that the diferent terroirs from the grapevarieties they work with show the different terroirs and personalities of the differentplots. Their wines are made in different little bins, mixing old and new winemakingtecniques. Daniel Ramos, in the aim to preserve as much as posible the purity ofhis wines, does not filter them.
