Vizcarra Ribera del Duero Celia Spain 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Vizcarra was founded in 1991 by winemaker Juan Carlos Vizcarra. Hisfather, Jose Manuel Vizcarra Aguado was among the pioneers in vineyardplantings in Ribera del Duero. Sixty-four acres of organically farmed vineyardsare located in the towns of Mambrilla Castrejon and Roa de Duero, in Ribera delDuero. The continental climate provides a long, slow ripening period resulting inwines that are darker, concentrated and aromatic. Soil composition is clay andlimestone topsoil and gravel subsoil. In 2007, the winery opened a new gravityfedwinemaking facility. All the wines are racked without pumping and bottled bygravity. This gentle treatment prevents harsh tannins and instead produces soft,complex and elegant wines.

Finca La Celia was founded in 1890, when Eugenio Bustos, who was later to acquire land in the Uco Valley , starting constructing the winery. His daughter, Celia Bustos, inherited the property and with her strong personality and leadership work these lands to convert them into prosperous vineyards. The Malbec produced at our winery is a clear example of the conditions offered by the Uco Valley to produce excellent wines. In the year 2000, Finca La Celia became the first foreign affiliate of the vineyard San Pedro ( Chile ). The lands were acquired by the company part of the CCU group, leader in the business of drinks (beer, wine, grappa, soft drinks, fruit juices and mineral water).
