Spain - Ribera Del Duero

Real Sitio de Ventosilla - ARANDA DE DUERO

On 11th November 1503, the second Count of Ribadeo sold Ventosilla to Queen Isabella the Catholic. Ventosilla remained in the hands of the Royal Crown of Castile until 1521, when it was donated by King Charles I to the II Marquis of Denia. His descendent, Francisco Gómez Sandoval y Rojas, first Duke of Lerma and prime minister of King Philip III, built the current palace to offer worthy accommodation to the king on the many times he visited Ventosilla in search of rest and the pursuit of hunting. Today the winery is state of the art. The grape reception area has been positioned at the top of the winery so that the must from the destemmed and pressed grapes reaches the vats by gravity. The alcoholic fermentation and maceration processes are carried out in self-emptying 30,000-litre stainless steel vats, six of which are of the submerged cap type due to the fact that they have a special structure that keeps the skins in constant contact with the liquid, thus enabling the extraction of the phenolic compounds. The fermentation temperature is controlled automatically by means of a new system called "Enocontrol", which allows programming of the cold curves for each vat by a computer as well as recording said curves as graphs.

La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
“La Gitana” is an absolutely classic example of this unique wine; it is beautifully balanced, fresh and delicate with a “touche” of sea-saltiness and a pure, nutty-fruit zestiness.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
