Characteristics of Protos Verdejo
Protos Verdejo is a white wine from the Rueda produced by the Bodega Protos winery, well known for producing reds in Ribera del Duero.
Protos Verdejo is made from 100% Verdejo, a Rueda typical variety. The grapes come from vineyards located in La Seca (Valladolid). These are planted on south-facing slopes, with the intention of taking advantage of sunshine, necessary for the optimal ripening of the grapes.
The climate of the area is dry, with hot summers and long, cold winters, with night frosts reaching -18 ° C, and with very steep temperature differences between day and night, ideal for proper maturation of the grape.
The development of Protos Verdejo starts with a harvest and transport of grapes in boxes of 20kg to manually select them in the cellar.
Once selected, the grapes undergo rigorous maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature of 14 ° C with an eye to maintain the maximum freshness possible in this Protos Verdejo.

The D.O. Rueda is a denomination spanning across Castilla y León, along the River Duero and its tributaries. It is mainly white wines that are produced in this D.O., and Verdejo grapes are by far the most popular variety. With hints of flowers, fruit, scrub herbs and very fine aromas, these grapes give the wine a very strong personality.
La Ribera del Duero tells us a story about an ancestral tradition that goes back to the 9th century, and which was already used my the monks of the Order of the Cistercians. A story about farms and terroirs, a large winemaking kingdom that has its roots back in the Middle Age, and whose imprint it hidden in the essence of its villages, its villas and its castle, Castillo de Peñafiel, on the of the most important fortresses of the region. Still preserved in the inside of the castle is the ageing winery of Protos, the first winery in the area, alongside Vega Sicilia, that sold bottled Ribera del Duero wines.
