  • Introduction

    • Celeste is born 895 meters above sea level, where the vines and the sky form a magical connection, resulting in a wine filled with the freshness, emotion, and intensity of a starry night.

    • Ribera del Duero
  • Vineyard Profile

    • Medium or fine-textured soils that are rich in carbonates and developed on hillsides over Miocene limestone and marl formations.

  • Vintage Report

    • The 2015 vintage saw a mild winter and late springtime frost, which reduced the crop load. Summer was very hot, and dry stable weather defined the harvest season. The Tempranillo grapes reached optimal ripeness, with very healthy highquality fruit.
