Zestos Old Vine is produced from Garnacha vines that were planted in 1950-70 in the high elevation vineyards of San Martin de Valdeiglesias, northwest of Madrid. Vinos de Madrid is not yet on the radar of wine consumers and offers exceptional winemaking at an exceptional value.

Zestos means "basket" in Spanish. Not too many years ago, baskets like the ones depicted on the label were used to transport grapes from the vineyard to the wineries. Madrid has recently become the center of one of the most interesting and innovative wine regions on the Iberian Peninsula.
