Mondo is a natural white wine made with the Verdejo variety by the Isaac Cantalapiedra winery in the V.T. Castila-León.
The Cantalapiedra family has worked vineyards in the Rueda area (Valladolid), generation after generation. It became a winery in 2014 with Isaac Cantalapiedra and his son Manuel to produce 100% organic terroir wines made mainly with the quintessential Verdejo variety. Mondo is Manuel’s personal project outwith the official brand, where he experiments with natural wines.
Mondo comes from a plot of old vines planted about 750 metres above sea level on sandy, clay soils and with the characteristic boulders that are often found in the region. They work with organic farming, using biodynamic treatments and the harvest is carried out manually.
In the winery Mondo ferments with its skins in open containers without temperature control for approximately 30 days. It is then placed with its lees in used 600-litre barrels where it stays for 11 months. It is finally bottled without being clarified, filtered or adding sulphur.
Mondo is an experiment by the current Cantalapiedra generation. A project that Manuel undertakes with his own hands, including the design of the label. A naturally Verdejo white wine.
