Rueda Wine

for this region?


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.

    Wine review by Dennis Lim

  • 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

  • Campo Alegre Verdejo Rueda 2015


    Floral minerality and chunky tropical fruit aromas on the nose with notes of papaya and white blossom playing off of tart lemon. This is quite smooth in the mouth, demonstrating a refreshing lift of citrus zest and tart salinity through the mid palate that leads into a peach, pear and grapefruit fruit medley with a creamy finish.

    Gorgeous peach and ripe green apple fruit aromas with hints of orange blossom and focused citrus on the nose. This opens fresh and green in the mouth, showing tart citrus flavors of grapefruit and lemon with pleasant creamy wooded notes of toast and a zesty finish that's quite herbal and delivers more lime zest through its full length.
