“Laura Estevez is the 4th generation of her family to manage their Mencia vines in Bierzo. Their 80+ year old vines produce a beautiful expression of Mencia, the indigenous grape variety of the region.

The 2016 Versos de Valtuille Cepas Centenarias is a one of my favorite styles of Spanish wine. It is aged for 4 to 6 months in oak barrels and then bottled, producing a soft, velvety wine that is mouth filling yet elegant. This wine is delicious by itself but it's very versatile with food; it pairs perfectly with lighter meats such as pork or lamb, a good roast chicken, or with any meat or sausage off the grill. This is a wine that you will want to uncork often... whether on a weeknight or when friends stop over. Stock up now, as we have limited quantities from this boutique Spanish producer.” – Jim Knight, The Wine House

2016 Versos de Valtuille Mencia 'Cepas Centenarias'
91 Points Decanter
91 Points: “Bright and energetic, almost zesty, with very well-judged oak accompanying dark fruit and hints of chocolate.” – Sarah Jane Evens MW, Simon Field MW, Pierre Mansour, Decanter (November 2018)


A poem made wine, structured and easy to drink. A wine with an accentuated gastronomic profile and a delicate texture.

Vineyard planted in bush with an average age of 90 years. Located on hillsides at an altitude between 400 and 600 meters with mostly clay soil and the presence of sand in the highest areas.

Hand harvested

Grapes harvested by hand and transported in boxes to the winery where they are hand selected. We perform a pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature for 5 days in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards the alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature durring 7-10 days. The post-fermentation maceration is carried out for approximately 10 days, and once finished, the wine is brought to French oak barrels where it will remain for 4-6 months. Once bottled the wine rests in the bottle for at least 2 months.

Tasting Notes:
Intense cherry red color and violet reflections. Clean, bright. With good intensity in nose, where aromas of ripe red fruits appear, combined with mineral touches and black licorice, as well as the presence of smoke and balsamic notes. The palate is structured and unctuous, with pleasant oak leaves. Fresh and balanced, with good persistence.

Between 4 to 6 months in oak barrels and 2 months in bottle
