The Domain: Montebuena - which means 'good mountain' - is the name of one of the best quality areas of Labastida. It is located in the eastern part of the village and covers more than 160 hectares (395 acres). 

Labastida’s viticultural records go back several centuries, but the best evidence of its winemaking history is its “lagares rupestres” – man-made formations, carved into large rocks in the vineyards, consisting of three holes where the grapes were pressed to obtain the juice prior to fermentation. These were used between the 9th & 18th centuries.
