Type of grape and region
Rueda and Verdejo, a region and its main variety. Two closely linked names that explain how a wine region has bet on and has boosted this autochthonous white variety to limits never imagined. The result is an excellent white wine that has given national and international fame to its makers.
With very similar characteristics to the white variety sauvignon blanc, also very used in the region, the wines of Verdejo offer very varietal aromas of fennel, fresh herbs, apple, and in the mouth they are fruity, fine and very elegant. They also perfectly accept the fermentation in barrels, making them more complex, unctuous and giving them a longer life.
Most of the vineyards are located south of the province of Valladolid and to a lesser extent in Segovia and Ávila. There the climate is of continental type with dry and cold winters, and hot summers with cool nights that help a perfect maturation of the grape. The soils are sandy and silty, which allows good aeration and drainage, a factor that influences the personality of the wine
