VerdejoAll products from this varietal
Verdejo is the aromatic grape variety known for light crispy whites with distinctive herbal bouquet with citrus hints and balanced acidity. Those wines better to consume in young age, but exist full-bodied Verdejo wines with nutty-herbaceous character and some cellaring potential.
Rueda is a Spanish wine region located on the Duero river around 150 kilometers northwest of the Spanish capital, Madrid, on roughly the same latitude as Ribera del Duero region. It is known for its dry, aromatic white wines made predominantly from the Verdejo grape variety. These fresh, aromatic whites are an ideal complement to the heavy Tempranillo-based reds of neighboring Toro. The Rueda vineyard area covers around 13,150 hectares, planted almost exclusively to white-wine varieties. Verdejo alone accounts for 11,650ha or around 89 percent. This demonstrates quite how far the variety has come since its renaissance in the 1980s when this figure was closer to 50 percent. After a long period in the shadows, Verdejo's potential was "rediscovered" by the respected Rioja producer Marques de Riscal, which produces several white Rueda wines.
Castile and Leon is located in the north of the central Pyrenees and is the largest of 17 regional regions in Spain, covering about a fifth of the total territory in the country. The Autonomous Community of Castile and León emerged in 1983 when two historic provinces were united: León and Castilla la Vieja. The region is dominated by red wines and the king is undoubtedly the Tempranillo grape. Here he is known by different names: Tinta del Pais, Tinto de Toro and Tinto Fino. The white wines of Castile and Leon are much smaller than the reds, but they are no less prestigious. They are made mainly from the white grapes Verdejo and Viura. Although the region's economy has traditionally focused on cereals, viticulture has been considered an important economic activity for over 2000 years. At the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, the area of vineyards decreased significantly, and the emphasis shifted from quantity to quality. Today Castile and Leon is home to some of the most respected wines from production zones such as Ribera del Duero, Toro, Rueda and Bierzo.
