STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

One of the mysteries of the wine world is why we don’t see more Verdejo. Of habitual good quality, it is equally good as a food wine or on its own. Production is mainly centred around the region of Rueda where it is native. This is a region characterised by extreme weather ranges and high altitude vineyards. Although a relatively young winery (formed in 2003), the vineyards at Bodegas Peñafiel are located at 900m, close to being some of the highest in Europe. This gives them a leg-up in crafting terroir-driven wines of great distinction and quality.
