Located in Ronda, its syrah clusters mature in silence listening to the stories of Finca La Nogalera, linked to the Beltrán family since 1866. They say that when they grow up they want to become “Perezoso” (lazy), an ecological and biodynamic wine that is named after the system of old pools that surrounds the farm. These pools allowed the water to stop in order to wash the fruits and vegetables from the orchards of the Finca La Nogalera.
The agricultural philosophy of the Gonzalo Beltrán family is the key to understanding this project. They have recovered traditional agriculture with respect for the land and the environment to offer unique wines.
Any time and place is good for a “perezoso”, but enjoying it surrounded by the vineyards of Finca La Nogalera is an experience that you have to live. The fresh air, the murmur of the water and the dramatic views will steal your heart .
