D.O. Bierzo (Castilla y León)
Pago de Valdoneje Mencía is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Vinos de Valtuille winery. As the name suggests, this is a single variety wine produced with the Mencía grape variety.
The climate of El Bierzo, which is characterised between continental and Atlantic, is ideal for the cultivation of vines and grapes. With an excellent level of humidity, coupled with adequate rainfall and relatively low temperatures create ideal conditions.
Pago de Valdoneje Mencía is made with grapes from old vines, some of which are over 80 years old, situated on south facing slopes at altitudes between 600 and 700 metres. Soils are clayey and sand and ferruginous substrates present in some areas. The harvest is usually carried out manually and relatively late, looking for the optimum point of maturation of the fruit.
Pago de Valdoneje Mencía is a young wine, whose principal phase of the winemaking process is fermentation, which is carried out in stainless steel tanks.
Vinos Valtuille is a small family winery that was founded at the beginning of the century. Its founder, Marcos García, forms part of a new generation of winemakers from Bierzo who are standing strong within the world of wine. This young winery certainly has an interesting future ahead of it.
