for this region?


This region is in the northwest of Spain, in the Castilla y Leon province near Galicia. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Cordillera Cantabrica mountain range ensures temperatures that are more moderate than other parts of the province. This means the Mencia grapes, thought to be a cousin of Cabernet Franc, ripen full and slowly, providing deep, smoky, luscious wines. 
Garnacha is also grown for blends. White wines are produced from Godello, Dona Blanco and Palomino.

    Wine review by connie7899

  • I recently discovered Bierzo wines.. I love Priorat and Ribiera del Duero wines but they can be pricey for everyday drinking, and Bierzo is a nice alternative.
