Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Bembibre is a red wine produced by the Dominio de Tares winery in Bierzo. The winery is found in the heart of El Bierzo, north-west of the province of León.

Bembibre is 100% produced from Mencía, the most characteristic variety of Bierzo. The grapes come from old vines, more than 60 years old, planted on slate and granite soils with a deep incline.

The vines are located on 6 different plots and are at an altitude of 600m above sea level. The harvest is done by hand, bunch by bunch, and grapes are selected upon sorting tables upon reaching the winery.

Once in the winery and stemmed, the grapes undergo 25 days of fermentation in stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts. After winemaking is complete, Bembibre ages for 16 months in Allier French oak barrels of 225 litres. Once aged, it is bottled unfiltered and spends another 24 months in bottle.

Dominio de Tares was a winery that entered the new national wine scene in the first years of this century, as it is a distinct reference of the modern Bierzo wines. Pioneer in the production of quality reds in El Bierzo, its Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas was the wine that best identified the singularity of the Mencía variety. From its first harvest, it placed D.O. Bierzo on the map of emerging areas with quality wines.
Pictures and situation Dominio de Tares
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.
