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 2017 is a fruity, full and tasty wine. The aromas of ripe black fruit stand out over a marked mineral base note. On the palate it has volume and great length. A rustic vintage 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.
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.
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.
