Why Buy Me
Castro Ventosa is the family winery of Raul Perez; one of the most talented winemakers in Spain. Over generations they have amassed an impressive collection of vineyard holdings, that today total over 60 hectares, most planted with Mencia vines that are over 60 years old.
Bierzo is a sleeping giant, fresh ripe fruit flavours, lively acidity and tannins make this a great food wine. Intense ripe black cherry and liquorice, and a supple texture make this a characterful red that is modestly priced.
