Lomopardo is a red wine produced by Viñedos de Lomopardo in the DO Bierzo region. This wine is made using only the Mencía grape variety.

The grapes used to make Lomopardo come from the Valdetruches estate, located in the municipality of Cacabelos, right in the heart of the Bierzo region. Under the direct influence of the Cantabrian Mountains and the mountains of León, the vineyard is home to Mediterranean temperatures, noted for being soft and mild, but there is also a slight Atlantic influence. The vines, which are over 40 years old, grow on terraces which are situated between 600 and 750 metres above sea level. The soils are mainly composed of clay, stone and slate.

The harvest is usually carried out in late September by expert harvesters. Small 14kg capacity boxes are used to transport the grapes to the winery, ensuring that the grapes to not bruise and do not ferment prematurely.

After arriving at the winery, the grapes undergo the various phases of the winemaking process in 20,000kg capacity tanks. Depending on the vintage, maceration and fermentation take place with the stems still intact for between 18-25 days. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine is then aged.

Lomopardo is then aged in new and second use French oak barrels for 6 months, although this can vary depending on the conditions of the grapes. Finally the wine is bottled, after which the wine can be enjoyed.

The Viñedos de Lomopardo winery forms part of the Compañía de Viñedos Iberian group. The group was founded in 2012 as a collaboration with the Luna Berberide family, who have spent the last 25 years dedicating themselves to the production of wines in El Bierzo.

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.
