Beatriz Herranz planted five hectares of Verdejo in 2008 in the village of La Seca, and whilst she was making Garnacha in Cebreros her mum worked the vineyards. In 2010 Beatriz gathered some friends, loaded up a van with Verdejo grapes and made 300 bottles of her first wine in Gredos. The yer after she bought another barrique and increased production to 1,000 bottles. In 2013 she rented a space in La Seca and started growing slowly, until she reached 35,000 bottles produced in 2014.
