Rueda Wine


Rueda is part of the Castilla-y-Leon region, northwest of Madrid and south of the Duero river. It was pretty much wiped out by Phylloxera in the first part of the 20th century, and became mostly bulk wine producing until bodegas from neighboring regions took interest to replant grapes since the region’s mild climate is so conducive. 
Verdejo is the main grape cultivated. This makes dry, fruity, and refreshing wines that are affordable, crowd-pleasing and excellent for parties. Small amounts of Macabeo (Viura) and Sauvignon Blanc are sometimes added as blending components. Some Sauv Blanc produced as a varietal release is also gaining popularity. Very little red from Tempranillo is also produced here.

  • Menade Verdejo 2015


    Quite minerally and steely on the nose with fresh lemon and melon notes. This is effervescent and zesty in the mouth, showing good tart lemon and grapefruit flavors with some soft melon amidst a perky spice and a burst of refreshing acidity. Finishes with hints of hazelnut and more grapefruit with fresh cut grass and a hint of peach. Read More

  • Arindo Verdejo 2014


    Intriguing lemon cream notes with vanilla bean spice and baked apple pie with butter on the nose. Tart lemon notes fresh on the palate with some oak baked in and fruit flavors of golden raisins, lemon curd and rye toast. Finishes with a bit more lemon zest and some clean grassy notes. Read More
