            [Notes2] => The estate owns 20 hectares of vineyard as well as controlling another 60 in the La Seca area of Rueda. The vineyard from which all the grapes come is located in the surroundings of the Serrada municipality, next to the Douro River at an altitude of 750 metres. The stony soil, which provides great drainage and good aeration, comes from alluvial terraces rich in calcium and magnesium. The climate is continental, with dry and hot summers and long cold winters. Environmental sustainability of the crop and the environment that preserve natural resources in their entirety. And for this we reduce chemical treatments for more natural biological care and compatible with the health of the vine and its fruits. The vineyard work is carried out with respect for the enviroment. 30 year old Verdejo vines were used farmed for the production of this wine.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => The 2022 vintage in the DO Rueda has been the longest of its entire history, since it began at dawn on Tuesday, August 16, earlier than in all historical records, and concluded more than two months later, on the week of October 17, with more kilos than the extreme drought of this year predicted. A rather complicated vintage compared to recent years. It is a somewhat atypical case, highlighting the increase in kilos collected, being the largest vintage with significant growth compared to the 2021 vintage, in which 122 million kilos were collected. Although it seemed that the harvest was highly conditioned by the extreme drought and the lack of water, the rains recorded on September 28 and 29 throughout the Rueda area left about 10 or 20 liters and favored the bunches taking a little more of weight in its final phase. From a sanitary point of view, the 2022 harvest has been very good due to the excellent quality of the grapes, which have not presented any problems with humidity or fungi, which most affect the final quality. This is a vintage with great potential from a qualitative point of view.

            [WineMakingNotes] => 85% Old Vine Verdejo, 25% Old Vine Viura. Fermentation takes place at 14-16ºC, which helps to maintain and intensify characteristic flavours. Next and in order to gain structure and ageing power, the wine is kept in contact with the fine lees in the deposit to strengthen its structure by providing fatty acids and more ample and glycerine like sensations on the palate. This turns it into a more elegant and gastronomic wine

                    [Notes4] => When Jose Antonio Merayo realized his life-long dream to have his own winery in 1996, his choice of D.O. Rueda was not arbitrary. The Duero River flows through the region’s northwestern corner and several tributaries branch off from the river to form
soils which are perfect for cultivating grapes. The region also enjoys a privileged climate with hot, dry days and cool nightsthat result in grapes with perfectly balanced levels of sugar and acidity. Today, Val de Vid owns 20 hectares of vineyards and
controls another 60 hectares in the area of La Seca in the heart of Rueda, which are planted exclusively with the Verdejo variety. Using the latest technology combined with traditional vinification methods, they produce white wines of exceptional quality and a singular expression of their soil and climate.

About this product +

Producer >

When Jose Antonio Merayo realised his life-long dream to have his own winery in 1996, he chose NW Rueda with tributaries of the Duero River forming soils which are perfect for cultivating grapes. Hot dry days and cool nights result in grapes with perfectly balanced levels of sugar and acidity. Today Jose owns 20 ha and controls another 60 in the La Seca region planted exclusively with the Verdejo varety.

Viticulture >

The estate owns 20 hectares of vineyard as well as controlling another 60 in the La Seca area of Rueda. The vineyard from which all the grapes come is located in the surroundings of the Serrada municipality, next to the Douro River at an altitude of 750 metres. The stony soil, which provides great drainage and good aeration, comes from alluvial terraces rich in calcium and magnesium. The climate is continental, with dry and hot summers and long cold winters. Environmental sustainability of the crop and the environment that preserve natural resources in their entirety. And for this we reduce chemical treatments for more natural biological care and compatible with the health of the vine and its fruits. The vineyard work is carried out with respect for the enviroment. 30 year old Verdejo vines were used farmed for the production of this wine.

Winemaking >

85% Old Vine Verdejo, 25% Old Vine Viura. Fermentation takes place at 14-16ºC, which helps to maintain and intensify characteristic flavours. Next and in order to gain structure and ageing power, the wine is kept in contact with the fine lees in the deposit to strengthen its structure by providing fatty acids and more ample and glycerine like sensations on the palate. This turns it into a more elegant and gastronomic wine
