The producer/the winemaking:
This is a young project with small beginnings. In 2008 Beatriz Herranz planted five hectares of Verdejo on old family land in the village of La Seca, but continued with projects elsewhere. Since then she's bought plots of old vines in nearby villages to make three singular cuvées of Verdejo, Viura and Palomino.The wines she crafts from this characterful grape come in a range of styles - from a fresh, fruity style to a single vineyard that is lees aged in oak. She aims to achieve an authentic expression of the grapes, and describes her wines as: swimming against the current.
