Abadía de Acón is a family run winery located in the heart of the D.O Ribera del Duero, in Castillo de la Vega, Burgos.
The original cellar, hewn out of rocky clay, is one of the deepest and largest in Castrillo de la Vega and was elaborated by Norberto Carrasco.
Today his grandson Jose Antonio Carrasco is in charge of the wines from this space-age looking bodega that emerges from the hillside, half of it buried underground and half of it visible.
His wines are robust, mouth-wateringly intense and made from Tempranillo (Tinta Fino) with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon going into the Reserva.
