The place that captivated us and set our dreams into motion is located in the foothills of the Grazalema range, close to the historic village of Arcos de la Frontera (Cádiz). For many centuries, Arcos was a strategic town coveted for its privileged location. Its name originates from Roman times when it was founded as Arx-Arcis (the high fortress).
A MOUNTAIN RANGE BETWEEN TWO SEAS
The Tesalia Estate stands on 106 hectares against the backdrop of the iconic town of Arcos de la Frontera and the Grazalema mountains. Of the 22 hectares dedicated to the winery, 11 hectares are under vine, a further 30 hectares are dedicated to the horse breeding and competition area, and the rest is farmland.
Extensive soil research led to the use of particular rootstocks and clones of both indigenous and international varieties, such as Petit Verdot and Tintilla de Rota. Other varieties planted are Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
