Pittacum, D.O. Bierzo

Arganza, a village with a longstanding vine-growing and wine-making heritage, is nestled in the extraordinarily beautiful landscape of the D.O. Bierzo. Based in Arganza, Pittacum is the Roman name for amphora, several of which were found on the site. The philosophy of Viñedos y Bodegas Pittacum is clear: to create wines with personality that-without denying the individual characters contributed by the Mencía grape variety, local region or climate-bear a unique stamp.

The winemakers at Pittacum believe that the quality of a great wine ultimately depends on the excellence of the raw material. The health, productivity and age of the vines are all key factors in achieving a final product of high quality. As this wine project is based on 50-80 year old dry-grown bush vines, strict care is taken with the fruit - green harvest and double selections are a regular viticultural undertaking.
