Viñas del Vero
Somontano – literally meaning ‘under the mountain’ – is a little known but breathtakingly beautiful area of Northern Spain, nestling in the foothills of the Pyrenees that form the border with neighbouring France. Dramatic canyons, and gushing rivers in deep ravines. Mediaeval villages and lonely monasteries atop rocky hilltops. Wildflower meadows and rolling green hills with abundant wildlife. To say it is an area of dramatic contrasts is an understatement, both in its landscape and its wines.
French winemakers fleeing the scourge of Phylloxera settled in the area, bringing with them grape varieties more commonly associated with other countries. Today, a mix of international and local varietals make for a unique offering from one of Spain’s younger DOs. Vinas del Vero is something of a hidden jewel in the portfolio, offering a varied range of single varietals and blends, spectacular garnachas from the high altitude Secastilla estate, and the highly acclaimed iconic wines from the bijou Blecua winery.
Environmental protection is everything here: early adopters of electric and hydrogen vehicles, recycling water in the winery, exploring organic cultivation practices, Vinas del Vero’s latest VIDAS initiative aims to identify and protect local bird species.
