Bodegas Breca is part of the prestigious Jorge Ordonez group, which was founded in 2005 by Jorge Ordoñez and is recognized as the only very highest quality in Spanish viticulture. The winery is located on the outskirts of the village and the vineyards are nestled in the high altitude valleys between the Sierra de Pardos and the Sierra de Pena Blanca. The winery owns 265 hectares (654 acres) of old-vine Garnachavineyards situated high on the hillsides from 950m -1000m (2,850-3,000 ft.) above sea level.
There is a range of soil types throughout the region; however the vineyards are comprised of principally decomposed slate and gravelly red clay soils. The vineyards were planted between 1925 and 1968. There is very little rainfall in the region around 350 mm (13.7”) per year. It is a very dry continental climate. During the growing season there are high daytime temperatures moderated by cool nights due to the high altitude. Winters are cold. The average annual temperature does not exceed 13°C, and frosts are common for almost six months of the year. This, coupled with the dryness of the region, greatly affects production, as these conditions affect first the ground, then the vines, and consequently the wine. The production rate is less than 1 t/acre for the 60 – 80 year-old vines and less than 0.40 t/acre for the 80 year old vines.
