History & Geography
Huellas del Tiétar is a project born in 2013 of the hand of Feliciano Conde and a few close friends aimed at curbing the near on one hundred-year-old vines grubbing-up due to the lack of generational replacement and the impossibility of its winemakers of “living off the grapes”. It was truly unfortunate to see how the result of hard work, much love and endless illusion of several generations was been torn out. So, we embarked on this wonderful and risky journey that takes us to a small town called Lanzahíta, located in the heart of the Tietar Valley, south of province of Ávila and sheltered to the north by the Sierra de Gredos. For four intense years we were getting to know the earth, our vineyards and we were recovering their potential to take the next big step: to create the Huellas del Tiétar Winery. That same year 2017, we joined the Protected Designation of Origin of Cebreros to start being part of a wonderful family of small and almost heroic winemakers and wine growers.
