The Cigales denomination of origin has 3,000 hectares of land for cultivation of vines in the northern region of the Duero Depression, to the north of the city of Valladolid, and it spreads throughout this province and a bit in the province of Palencia, on both banks of the Pisuerga River up to the Torozo Mounts.
The soil inCigales is deep, not light, and it consists of Tertiary and Quaternary sediments, with sand, limestone, on a base of loam and gravel. The climate is continental, but with Atlantic influence, with large temperature variation and irregular rainfalls.
The main crop in Cigales is the Tinta del Pais variety, which is very similar to Tempranillo or Tinto Fino, occupying more than half of the vineyard. The second strain is Garnacha Tinta. Both of them provide wines with an irregular ripening, and variations in intensity of the color of the skins from one year to another.
