Tragolargo Blanco is a natural, ecological and vegan orange wine made by Casa Balaguer-Vinessens with the Muscat and Merseguera varieties in the D.O. Alicante (Valencia).
Vinessens was set up in 2008 in Villena (Alicante) with the aim of showcasing the region’s landscape and character. It is run by Andrés Carull and Marta Ribera, two winemakers and both from winemaking families, who work to make natural and organic garage wines. In 2017, Vinessens took over Casa Balaguer, previously managed by Rafa Bernabé, and they were brought together to form Casa Balaguer-Vinessens, holding onto the original character of all the wines, but with updated labels.
Tragolargo Blanco comes from vineyards in the Alicante town of Villena. They enjoy a mainly continental climate with big temperature contrasts, although they are also influenced by the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea. The vines have official organic farming certification and the harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.
Tragolargo Blanco is a white wine that is vinified in contact with the skins for a short time as if it were a red wine. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with native yeasts and the wine is bottled without filtering or clarifying.
As its name suggests, Tragolargo Blanco is a very pleasant, young and easy to drink wine. An orange wine with a Mediterranean climate.
