The vineyard is situated in the mountainous region of Serranía de Ronda, on a high plain (approx.780m) that dominates the valley and features the village of Arriate in the background. It enjoys a very good climate: high temperatures and with a great differentiation between the daily maximum and minimum.
Vetas was founded on a small estate, with 1 ha for wine cultivation surrounding the winery. It’s an ecologically friendly vineyard, with organic practices that respect the natural environment: we use traditional working methods and natural fertilizers, free of any types of pesticide, herbicide or chemical fungicide.
Juan Manuel Vetas was born in Avila and then emigrated to France in order to be integrated into the word wine: Medoc (Bordeaux), where he worked, has various prestigious Chateaux. At the end of the eighties, he returned to Spain with a project to pioneer the cultivation of a vineyard in Ronda. He was working with the famous Prince Von Hohenlohe. Later he went on to receive other prestigious international awards and at the end of the nineties, he decides to create a winery with his name: “Vetas”. At this time his motivation was to increase the profile of Ronda´s Wine. He planted the equivalent of 70% of vineyards in this area and acted in an advisory role to most of the important wineries. He encouraged them to have their own identity stamp: wines with their own character, all of them different, natural and in harmony with the local environment.
Bodega Vetas has created three wines: one ‘Seleccion’ with the varieties: Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and completed with Petit Verdot and the other: 100 % Petit Verdot. This is only produced when the grape is perfect. Both wines are organic and traditionally created. These wines are allowed to age slowly both in the barrel and the bottle. They have great personality and complexity and can be consumed and enjoyed beyond ten years. The third wine is Junior, a tribute to the fruit with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and aged for eight months in French oak barrels.
