* Almaroja is the personal project of Charlotte Allen in Fermoselle, DO Arribes. From the hand of Noël Pinguet he took his first steps in the world of winemaking in the Loire Valley, where he soaked up the philosophy of Biodynamics. He continued his apprenticeship in Italy and South Africa, after which he returned to France to study oenology and viticulture in the Rhone. During a trip around the Rueda area he met again with his friend Didier Belondrade, who told him about the Arribes del Duero area to create unique wines. Eight months later he arrived at Fermoselle and was overwhelmed by the wild beauty of the region: the deep gorges carved by the Douro and the Tormes and its steep terraces full of old vines.
It currently has 12 hectares of vineyards managed under biodynamic precepts, where we find Juan García as the queen variety.
