An owl is waiting in a solitary chestnut tree. The Bierzo region is veiled in mist. On steep, dark slate hills the vines receive intimate, pains taking cultivation. Wisdom able to preserve the magic of the Mencía wines. The Bierzo region is in a natural setting of great beauty, namely Hoya Berciana, the depression in the mountains encircling El Bierzo from which the only natural exit in the direction of Galicia is the course ofthe River Sil. Old vines grow in this rugged terrain, a landscape marked by its slate slopes.

A versatile wine, it pairs perfectly with many dishes: barbecued meat, stews, game, mushrooms, smoked or dried meat, sheep’s cheese, sautéed vegetables, etc.
