Características de Las Gundiñas
Las Gundiñas is a red wine from Bierzo, prepared by the small winery La Vizcaína de Vinos, led by renowned winemaker Raul Perez, who had the idea of producing wines with great expression of the vineyard through traditional production together with minimal intervention.
Las Gundiñas is a blend, with Mencia variety as the main grape, completed in small quantities by three little-known varieties: Alicante Bouschet, Estaladina and Souson. The grapes come from a small vineyard located on the bottom of a slope. The vines are planted in deep soil, rich in clay that collects water and rainfall sediment. Harvesting is done by hand in small boxes. Fermentation occurs in timber vats of 5000 litres, the whole grape is pressed each day until fermentation occurs. Once the fermentation has occurred, the grapes macerate for 40-60 days. Finally, Las Gundiñas is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. A fresh and fruity wine made in the traditional way by Raúl Pérez, a master at maximising the use of the land. A light wine, fresh and juicy with very soft tannins and a great balance between alcohol and acidity.

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".
La Vizcaína de Vinos is the famous oenologist Rubén Pérez's new winery in the DO Bierzo. The name is a tribute to his father, who used the same name for his own bodega. The bodega is situated in Valtuille de Abajo, a town with one of the longest winemaking traditions in the DO Bierzo. This bodega is committed to making wines which reflect the expression of the local terroir, producing wines from individual plots of land. The winery's main challenge is to recover some of the traditional varieties from Bierzo that are nowadays almost extinct, such as Merenzao, Sousón, Alicante, Doña Blanca and Palomino, in order to give their wines an Atlantic personality. La Vizcaína de Vinos make five different wines with very low production, no more than 5000 bottles.
