The monastery of La Mejorada, located between Valladolid, Salamanca and Segovia, was founded at the beginning of the 15th century. In 1999 Bodegas y Vinedos de La Mejorada acquired the remains of the Monastery and in 2007 the property was purchased by the family of Jose Rafael Moneo. The 105 acres of vineyards are planted to Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Malbec on deep alluvial terrain, eroded granite and gravel over a base of moist clay. Winemaker Florent Dumeau is assisted by vineyard manager Xavier Chone and technical director Alvaro Bernardo.
