Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Akilia de San Lorenzo is a red wine from the D.O. Bierzo produced by the Akilia winery. This is a single variety wine made with Mencía grapes that come from three different plots.

The grapes used to make this wine come from the estates Chano Villar, Lombano and Villarín. The first, which spans across two hectares, is situated on mild lopes facing east and grows on clay loam and slate soils. The second spans just over half a hectare, on a steep gradient and facing west. The third plot, that occupies one hectare, has an east facing orientation on mild slopes and grows on clay loam soils with quartzite and slate.

The various vineyards have an average age of 80 years and are cultivated using traditional goblet trained vines. The harvest is carried out manually, with small boxes being used, ensuring that the bunches and grapes do on break or rupture. The vinification process for each plot is carried out independently in concrete tanks. The grapes from Chano Villar and Villarín are left to rest for 9 months in concrete tanks, while the most from Lombano ages for one year in French oak barrels.

Akilia is a young winery from Bierzo which works wonders with the Mencía grape variety, an opinion shared by renowned wine critic Robert Parker, perhaps one of the most influential wine critics in the world.

Pictures and situation Akilia
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.
