Flor de Brezo is a red wine from Bierzo produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba. This wine is a varietal Mencia.
The soil on which the grapes are grown is composed of slate with sandy areas. This is worked by hand, with three ploughings pulled by two cows.
The clusters grow in three different plots, which are between 550 and 700 metres in altitude. The age of the vines are also between 80 and 50 years, depending on the plot.
The harvest is done manually in boxes. The grapes, once in the winery, are selected, destemmed and squeezed. The subsequent fermentation occurs in wooden foudres, where it remains until the transfer. Aging takes half a year.
Flor de Brezo is finally bottled after a light refining and filtration on open plates. Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba is located in San Juan de Carracedo, on the Camino de Santiago. The workers in the winery seek to run the best wine cellar through respect and sustainability of the vineyard.
