Estate: Viñas del Vero was founded in 1986 in the Somontano region of Aragon, northern Spain. Today with their 700 hectares of vineyards, they are the leading winery in Somontano for both volume and quality of wines. They practice sustainable and organic viticulture. Along with initiatives to restore indigenous plants, many of the vineyards are located on steep slopes, where the vines act as a natural stabilizer for the land. The estate belongs to the prestigious Association of the Great Estates of Spain.
Philosophy: “To develop a quality, sustainable and environmentally-friendly viticulture industry.”
Winemaking: Located in the most northern part of Somontano, Viñas del Vero has been a firm believer in Secastilla’s potential, and is currently the only winery in Somontano that makes wine from grapes grown in the Secastilla Valley. The vineyards are farmed both organically and sustainably. Grapes were sourced from hand harvested “very old” vines.
Tasting Notes: Inky red-violet in colour with plush aromas of black cherry, smoky cedar and sweet barbeque traces. Black currant, cherry and licorice flavours culminated in a velvety finish of smooth tannins, crushed pink peppercorn, and sweet baked black cherry notes.
