Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Marañones El Quiebro is a barrel-aged white wine made by Marañones in the D.O. Vinos de Madrid with the Albillo variety.

Marañones was set up by Fernando García Alonso, one of the oenologists responsible for the increasing production of Sierra de Gredos wines and the owner of the J. Fernando Cornejo winery. At the foot of the meeting point between the Sierra de Guadarrama and the Sierra de Gredos, in Sant Martín de Valdeiglesias (Madrid), they make wines that honestly reflect the qualities of a wine region that is increasingly praised by international experts.

The Marañones El Quiebro wine comes from the winery’s youngest Albillo vineyards. These strains were planted in 2013 in sandy loam soils that are poor in organic matter and in an area with a big temperature difference between day and night. They are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the grapes are harvested manually in 12 kg boxes.

In the winery, the Maranones El Quiebro grapes are gently pressed to begin fermentation in used French oak wood barrels and casks. It then ages for 9 months.

Marañones El Quiebro is the young wine made by this winery. A breakthrough white wine that is subtly hinting towards the future of this winery in the Sierra de Gredos. A white wine with well defined fruit and a salty finish.

For the Marañones Winery, “landscape wines” is not just an advertising mantra. They handcraft the flavors and nuances presented by the unusual environment of the Sierra de Gredos, where they have a mosaic of vineyards which work under biodynamic principles in the DO Vinos de Madrid. They’re committed to the varieties of the area: Garnacha, Morenillo and Albillo, which come from old vines which grow in impressive high-altitude vineyards. In short, wines made with honesty and dedication.
Pictures and situation Marañones
Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
