Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas is a red wine made by Vineyards and Winery of Dominio de Tares, one of the wineries to note in the Bierzo region located in San Román de Bembibre.

The climate in this region is continental yet mild due to moisture from the Atlantic. Temperatures range from between 3.6° C in winter and 23,6º C in the summer. This wine comes from a single variety of the Mencia grape, from vines more than 60 years old, planted on south-facing slopes where the soil contains calcareous clay, slate and gravel. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level. As for the ripening process, after the stemming and crushing of the grapes is carried out, alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at a controlled temperature of 30° C. Subsequently, the must undergoes malolactic fermentation in American oak barrels. Maturing takes 9 months in American oak barrels (Missouri and Virginia) and French oak barrels (Allier & Nevers), the barrels are both new and pre-owned.

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.
