Wine & Spirits
Ramon Losada grows his entry-level wine on fertile soils, a blend of slate and clay near the Mino River, working with vines that are 80 years old. The result is a pure and juicy mencia, a lovely blend of mineral flavors and red fruit. It feels spicy and refreshing, the tannins lending strength without adding weight.

D. Ventura, Spain
D. Ventura  Winery Image

One of the most stunning landscapes in Spain is located in the heart of Galicia, in an area known as the Ribeira Sacra (Sacred Banks). Driving on the N-120 between Villafranca del Bierzo and Ourense you follow the river Sil as it cuts through gorgeous canyons terraced with vineyards.

D. Ventura is a project by Ramón Losada and his family utilizing old family holdings in this ancient wine-growing region. Ever since the Romans inhabited the area, people have been growing grapes on the steep terraces lining the two rivers that form the denomination. Working these lands is extremely difficult, as the terraces in some areas are so steep that the grapes have to be brought in on a dumb waiter. All farming is done by hand, and Ramón, with the help of Gerardo Méndez of Do Ferreiro, has changed the farming techniques to incorporate a more natural approach.

Winemaking here has also undergone a transition to a more organic form. Only indigenous yeast is used to start fermentation. None of the wines are filtered or cold stabilized. The maturation of the grapes is watched carefully to ensure that they are fully mature when harvested.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
