Characteristics of Luna Beberide Finca la Cuesta
Luna Beberide Finca la Cuesta is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Luna Beberide winery. This is a single variety wine, made with the Mencía grape variety.
The grapes used to produce this wine come from estates situated in the municipality of Villafranca del Bierzo. The 80 hectares of vineyards used are over 60 years old and grow on calcareous clay and slate soils, which sit on bedrock. The area is home to an Atlantic and continental climate, characterised by a strong thermal contrast between day and night, as well as strong insolation and frequent rainfall during the months of spring and autumn.
Luna Beberide Finca la Cuesta is made using traditional winemaking methods and techniques, drawing on the years of the regions experience in the industry. After being aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, the wine is bottled without being filtered.
A specialist with the Mencía grape, the Luna Beberide winery bases their work philosophy on two main pillars: simplicity and quality. The winery was founded back in 1996 and is surrounded by an imposing natural landscape.

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental. The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area. The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather. What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine. The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.
Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity. Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
Bodegas y Viñedos Luna Beberide are the surnames of Alejandro and Merche, the results of the initiative that their parents had more than thirty years ago in El Bierzo. The choose to use the local varieties Godello and Mencía from vineyards facing south, on the hillsides of the valley of El Bierzo. They are located at a moderate altitude, on clayey soils that mark the fruitiness of the Mencía, while the clayey-calcareous soils provide complexity. At 800 metres, the slate gives heterogeneity and minerality to these wines that are fresh and elegant. But it is also an experimental winery, where they work will all kinds of white and red foreign varieties to study their behaviour in the climate and on the different soils of El Bierzo.
