Finca El Rincón

“Finca El Rincón”, the family residence of Carlos Falcó Fernandez de Cordova, marquis of Griñon, situated at 55 km. south west of the capital in the province of Madrid. In 2000, 9 hectares of vineyards were planted on the 1600 hectares estate. The vineyards composed of limestone topped by more than a foot of topsoil were planted with 90% Syrah and 10% Garnacha. They are within the borders of the appellation D.O. Vinos de Madrid.

Vinos de Madrid is just outside Madrid city in the center of Spain



Vineyard management
Use of modern trellises advised by Richard Smart, the famous Australian viticulturalist and a consultant to Marques de Griñon since 1992. The Smart-Dyson conduction system allows even exposure of bunches and leaves to sunlight and therefore uniform ripening of the grapes, which is a key factor in the success of the wines.

The vines are permanently supervised including the use of dendrometers to monitor water stress in the vines and c-probes that measure soil water content at different depths.

Winery El Rincón
In 2001 a small winery was built on the estate for the elaboration of approximate 50.000 bottles per year. The first wine from the family estate El Rincon was released in 2005.
