BODEGAS CASTROVENTOSA, 

DO BIERZO

Bodegas y Viñedos Castro Ventosa is a winery located in Valtuille de Abajo. To talk about Castro Ventosa is to talk about a region, but mostly about people who are rooted to the land. These are people with their own style, dignified and discrete, detached from ephemeral disruptions, fashions and trends, simply in tune with the cyclical and monotonous rhythm of the seasons and  the vineyard. At Castro Ventosa, life gravitates around the land, the vineyard, the grape and wine which can only be created as natural consequence of doing things right at every stage.

BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS RAÚL PÉREZ, DO BIERZO AND GALICIA

Raúl Pérez is serious about his work, but doesn’t take himself too seriously. He is deeply committed to getting it right, but entirely unafraid of failure. He believes that wine is made in the vineyard, but is undeterred from trying a multitude of strategies to find that vineyard’s voice. As a winemaker, Raul’s mission is to capture the full potential of each site he works with; he has an uncanny knack for knowing what a vineyard needs and how to treat that vineyard’s grapes once in the winery to achieve their greatest expression. Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez produces rare, handcrafted, artisanal wines from varieties such as Albariño, Mencía, Bastardo, Prieto Picudo and Godello from the Northwestern DOs of Spain.

CASA AURORA, GERMÁN BLANCO, BIERZO ALTO

Casa Aurora is a product of high altitude, organic vine growing in the Upper Bierzo area.

Weather difficulties and the mining boom (coal and gold)made people abandon wine production in the area. The wineries are now striving to recover and Casa Aurora is at the center of this revival. They work with 3 vineyards and many indigenous grape varieties. The vineyards total 5 hectares, so production is very limited. The vines are located in the villages of Al-bares de la Ribera (the home village of the winemaker) and San Esteban (the project is named after it). The soil is mostly clayey (red clay with a high content of iron) with some sand and stones on the surface.
