Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Menogaba Mencía is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Mengoba winery. This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties: Mencía and Alicante Bouschet. 

The Mencía grapes come from vineyards that are over 80 years old, located in the municipality of Espanillo, 700 metres above sea level. The Alicante Bouschet grapes, also known as Garnacha Tintorera, come 50 year old vineyards in the towns of Horta and Villafranca del Bierzo, 550 metres above sea level.

The vineyards are home to slate, clay and sandy soils, which are cultivated using artisan methods. The climate is continental, although with Atlantic influences, is ideal for the cultivation of these varieties of grapes. The harvest is carried out manually, ensuring that the grapes to not break and that they remain in the best possible condition on arrival to the winery.  

At the winery, the grapes for Mengoba Mencía are destemmed and pressed before being placed into large wooden fudres. Here, the juice of the wine ferments and rests until racking, six months later. The wine is then bottled after a light clarification and without filtration.

Mengoba is a project led by renowned winemake Gregory Pérez. Working sustainably and with the upmost respect for the vineyards, the winery has become one of the most emblematic in El Bierzo.

Pictures and situation Mengoba
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.
