    Winemaker Notes

    Smoke-accented aromas of blueberry, blackberry and dark chocolate. Displays bitter cherry and dark chocolate flavors and a hint of candied flowers. Building tannins come on late and add grip to the finish, with the blueberry and floral notes echoing. Mencia is grown in Spain's northwestern Bierzo, Ribeira Sacra and Valdeorras, regions known for seriously old vines and slate and granite soils that give the wines balance and minerality.

    Mencia pairs extremely well with steak tartar, calamari and goat cheese.

    Vinos Guerra Winery Image

    Vinos Guerra, founded in 1879, is the oldest winery in the Bierzo region. The founder Don Antonio Guerra was a pioneer in many ways. Mr. Guerra was one of the first producers to bottle method champanois wines in Spain. In addition to wine, Don Antonio also produced a variety of spirits from Agua Ardiente, to Vermouth and Anisettes.

    Today the Guerra winery farms 1/3 of all the vineyards of the Bierzo region. Out of the 3,000ha (7,413 acres) of vineyard land in Bierzo, Guerra takes care of 1,000ha (2,471 acres), however they only make wine with the best 10% of grapes. This rigorous selective process allows the Guerra wines to show, consistently, extraordinary quality.

    In addition to been so selective, Guerra possesses among the oldest and most precious Mencia (Mehn-cee-ah) and Dona Blanca vines in the Bierzo region. The average age of these vines is 50 years making wines that are able to communicate an impressive sense of depth and flavor.

    In summary Guerra is one of the most historic wineries in Spain focus in making wine with the best selection of grapes coming from old vines that are 50+ years old. All these vineyards are organic and dry farmed.

    Red Wine

    Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, 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.

    Most planted and respected 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.
