Characteristics of Corral del Obispo
Corral del Obispo is a red wine from Bierzo developed by Viñedos Singulares, a winery located in various denominations of origin (Rueda, Rias Baixas, Montsant, Bierzo and Ribera del Duero). This winery was founded by the brothers Luis and Carlos Barrero.
The climate in the Bierzo is Mediterranean, mild and temperate. It is characterized by mild temperatures and record rare frosts due to the low altitude of the area. This wine is a varietal Mencia (100%) from their own vineyards aged between 60 and 90 years, planted on soils composed of fine elements, quartzite and slate, with a low content of lime. In terms of processing, fermentation is carried out in wood and stainless steel barrels. Finally Corral del Obispo is aged in fine French oak barrels for a period of four months.

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
