Calicata – Terroir Bar
A captivating place to explore our land and our wines
Calicata is the name for Abadía Retuerta’s new project. A magical space where you can extend your visit to the winery —or stay just to enjoy a unique place away from the city and the noise— and better understand the meanings of this land, Castilla y León and its wines. A terrace overlooking the Abadía Retuerta’s pine forest and vineyards.
Calicata is a technical term so much used by enologists to understand the soil where they grow their vineyards. Specifically, it is the examination of a soil by means of a borehole or a probe in order to know the minerals it contains. Metaphorically, we have done the same in Calicata. We have explored the land, the environment, the wines and the growers to offer the visitor a unique experience on the banks of the Douro River. That is why we call Calicata a Terroir bar.
Everything in Calicata has a reason to be: the plates —designed by Marc Segarra; the furniture, the materials, the tableware and obviously, the wines. They are introduced as a game, allowing their approach from different angles.
Abadía Retuerta is much more than wine but it all starts there.
