Characteristics of Puerta del Viento
Puerta del Viento is a red wine produced by the winery Puerta del Viento Wines in Cacabelos, D.O. Bierzo.
Puerta del Viento Wines is the personal project of Jorge and Rosana. They started it in 2009, when they decided to recover 2 family vineyards, one in Pieros, at 550 metres above sea level on alluvial sand and over 80 years old, and the other in Cobrana, at 800 metres of altitude, on slate soils and over 60 years old.
Puerta del Viento Wines works with the 2 native grape varieties of the area, Mencía and Godello from its vineyards with organic certification. All their wines are made without any additives, nor SO2, transmitting the personality of the area with utmost elegance.
Puerta del Viento is a natural young wine made with Mencía from their own vineyards, which are over 80 years old.
They are manually harvested and placed in 15 to 17-kg boxes. Once in the winery, the grapes are stomped and partially fermented in oak barrels with native yeasts. It is naturally clarified, bottled without filtering and without added sulphites.
Puerta del Viento is a fruity, ample and tasty wine. The aromas of ripe black fruit stand out on a marked mineral background. In the mouth it has volume and great length. A rustic wine, but with character.

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.
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".
