    Winemaker Notes

    From the expression "rarer than a green dog" El Perro Verde is Quim Vila's latest project from the historic high altitude vineyards of Rueda, made by Javier Lorenzo at Bodegas y Viñedos Ángel Lorenzo Cachazo. 100% Verdejo sourced from three parcels, consisting of old bush vines near La Seca. Average age of the vines range from 15 to 35 years. Fermented and aged in stainless-steel tanks.

    Vila Viniteca, Rueda, Spain
    2007 El Perro Verde
    In 1998, Finca Allende and Vila Viniteca formed a partnership to embark on a new project in La Rioja called 'Paisajes y Viñedos'(Landscapes & Vineyards). With Miguel Angel de Gregorio's wide knowledge of La Rioja (Finca Allende) and his winemaking experience, the pair embarked on a negociant-like business selecting each year different vineyards belonging to different owners. The sites are selected based on their geographical qualities so that very elegant and unique wines can be made. The grapes are chosen and purchased –normally at above market price- and vinified thereafter giving each type of 'Paisajes' a very different process of vinification. The aging and bottling process then takes place at Finca Allende. Originally, the Rioja Appellation of Origin Bureau forbid printing the name of the town, vineyard or origin name on the label. As a result each wine or vineyard is assigned a number to identify each type of 'Paisajes'. In 2003, the laws loosened a bit and now vineyard names are allowed to be included on some of the Paisajes wines. Some 'Paisajes' are placed on the market every year, others may skip one or two vintages if the required quality of grapes to produce an excellent wine is not reached.

    An historic zone responsible for some of Spain’s freshest white wines, Rueda is home to the indigenous grape varieties of Verdejo and Viura, though most of its whites are a majority, if not entirely, made of Verdejo. The region has also enjoyed some amazing success with the international variety, Sauvignon blanc.

    Rueda’s Verdejo vineyards flourished as far back as the Middle Ages. But the region wasn’t spared from the phylloxera epidemic of the late 1800s, which wiped out a great majority its vines. The 20th century saw a slow catch for replanting of Verdejo until the 1970s when the famous Rioja winery, Bodegas Marqués de Riscal recognized the region’s lost potential. It needed a fresh white to market alongside its Rioja red wines and was able to escalate Verdejo’s popularity once again with this goal in mind.

    Today Verdejo vines have adapted to and flourish in the stark landscape of Rueda’s high elevation flatlands and even some ancient vines, living in sandy soils where phylloxera could not survive, still produce exceptionally complex and mineral-driven Verdejo-based whites.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
