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.
