Domain: Pruno Finca Villacreces was founded by Pedre de Villacreces, after whom the domaine is named. He was a Franciscan monk who settled in the region to devote himself to prayer and working the land. He cultivated a few parcels of grapes for his own personal consumption. The vineyard is located above the river Douro and the vines span 64 hectares divided into some fifteen parcels of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The varied soils contribute to the diversity of the wines. Yields are naturally low, partly because of the harsh climate and the high altitude (700 metres above sea level).
