Jesús Romero has joined forces with San Alejandro’s winemaker, Juan Vicente Alcañiz, and purchased a three-hectare vineyard of 70-year-old Garnacha at in Báguena (Teruel), in Aragón, but outside all appellations of origin. As in many old vineyards, it’s sprinkled with plants of other varieties, including Miguel de Arco, Macabeo or Bobal among the Garnacha. They have also been working with a 3.8-hectare plot of ten-year-old vines at 980 meters altitude.
The name RUBUS has been chosen for 2 reasons. Firstly, a nod to its origins, in the municipality of Rubielos de Mora (in Teruel, Aragon, Spain) and secondly, to refer to Rubus Ulmifolius, a species of wild blackberry that evokes its aromas and defines the landscape of the area.
