Wines for cosy and homelike winter dishes

We are starting this year bringing you monthly selections to make your life easier when it comes to choosing. You can also get to know new producers and new wines.

For this month, we have prepared several wines for you so that you can enjoy these cold, rainy days. Complex wines, spicy and aged in barrels. Perfect to contemplate these days from your window, accompanied by an enjoyable and homely meal.



Here is our first selection of the year:

Ultreia Mencía: Raúl Pérez is one of the revivers of El Bierzo. He started out in the family winery of his hometown, Valtuille de Abajo. Now, he is a worldwide reference. This Mencía shows the more northern character of the variety. Light and spicy, with its stay in the barrel giving it a perfect depth.

Valdehermoso Crianza: Valderiz is in charge of making wines with character in Ribera del Duero. It starts with an organic viticulture. Then, it continues with little intervention in the winery, which gives the wine its great uniqueness. This specific wine goes through a long ageing in the barrel, which helps it stabilise in a natural way.

Pas curtei: This winery was the first to make garage wines in Penedés. With very few means, Irene Alemany and Laurent Corrio began to make wines with good structure. Their style focuses on wines with different varieties that link the fruity and spicy side, added to the ageing in barrel, which gives great complexity to the wine.

Tentenublo Tinto: Roberto Olivan offers us a Rioja wine like those they used to make. Located in Viñaspre, this vinedresser spends all day pampering his crops. At the winery, he likes to extract all the essence with long macerations and ageing in used barrels. Balance and know-how.

Urogallo Pésico: Nicolas Vicente produces these wines in the Asturian Atlantic. The valley of Cangas Narcea protects them from all the Atlantic storms and helps with the optimal ripening of the red varieties. This is the case of this Pésico, made with native varieties of the area, Albarín, Carrasquín, Mencía and Verdejo Tinto. A wine with a spicy character, with a stay in barrel that regulates its acidity and adds complexity. Perfect for this time of year.

Terra d’Uro Finca la Rana: In the January selection we could not leave out a wine from the area of Toro. We present you with a wine made with Tinta de Toro, muscular and somewhat fruity from organic agriculture. An ageing in 500-litre barrels and cement deposits give it a perfect balance to enjoy it with your winter meals.
