Characteristics of Blecua
Blecua is a red wine from the Somontano region produced by the Viñas del Vero winery. This wine is a blend of Garnancha, Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The grapes used to make Bleuca are carefully selected from 7 of the best vineyard that the winery owns. They are located in various parts of Somontano, on slopes that are exposed to sunlight. The havest is done entirely by hand. After selection at the vineyard, clusters are examined by hand to ensure that only the best bunches are selected.
Finally, after a separate fermentation in large French oak casts, the wines are aged in four different types of new French oak barrels. After this after the ageing proccess, the best barrels of wine are selected for the final blend, which is then aged for another 8 months. Blecua is then bottled without being filtered nor stabilized.
Viñas del Vero in a winery that has been in the Aragon region of Somontano sine it was established back in 1986, when they acquired 550 hectares of land in the area. The winery now is home to 250 stainless Steel tanks and 8,000 barrels of American and French oak.

Today, the wines of the DO Somontano are characterised by their modernity, elegance and varietal personality. Just like Alsace, Chile, Australia and California, the DO Somontano is able to boast a tempting variety of truly international style white, rosé and red wines. The majority of wines produced in this region are single variety wines, using both native and international grape varieties, produced using varying winemaking techniques. As well as maintaining a high quality of wines, the Somontano region has managed to maintain fair prices in comparison to the competition, despite heavy economic investments by the wineries. Great quality and fair prices have helped wines from the region conquer much of the domestic market and openly compete with international markets.
Blecua is the result of what we call the "triple selection: vineyards, bunches and barrels". Viñas del Vero is now one of the extensions of vineyards more important of Spain, working on a total 1,000 hectares of which 750 are our property. So each year we select the seven best vineyards in four different grape varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Tempranillo to establish the basis for our Blecua.
