The grapes to produce Sauvignon Blanc “Antina” Casa del Valle were carefully selected at optimum maturity and were vinified using selected yeasts. The fermentation of Sauvignon Blanc “Antina” Casa del Valle took place at low temperatures followed by a prolonged period on its fine lees, which imparted a roundness and smoothness to the resulting wine.
The vines are grown in Yepes, in Toledo part of the Tajo River Valley. The soil has high calcareous content, with predominance of gypsum and a sandy loam texture. The vines are between 15 to 17 years old and benefit from the dry, warm climate which has an annual rainfall of approximately 400 millimetres per annum.

The Casa del Valle 100 hectares of vineyard are planted with Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, all chosen for their suitability for ageing and their well-defined character.
