Producer Profile

Bodegas Cueva

Bodegas Cueva epitomizes the essence of tradition, rooted in history dating back to the 18th century despite its formal establishment in 2000. Mariano Taberner, deeply attuned to his land, channels the mystical allure of the Mediterranean through his grapes. A pioneer in organic certification by the Comité de Agricultura Ecológica de la Comunidad Valenciana, Taberner prioritizes biodiversity and vineyard vitality.

Nestled within Cueva's domain flourish a diverse array of centenarian vines—Tempranillo, Bobal, and Tardana, the latter a staple for their sparkling wines. Preserved in ancient underground cellars, the wines maintain their natural coolness, untouched and undisturbed.


Where The Wines Come From


Natural wine production in Valencia, Spain, encapsulates the region's vibrant culture, rich history, and diverse terroir. Nestled along the Mediterranean coast, Valencia boasts a sunny climate, fertile plains, and rugged mountain ranges, creating an ideal environment for viticulture. Native grape varieties such as Bobal, Monastrell, and Garnacha thrive in the region's sandy soils and warm, dry climate, producing wines of exceptional depth and character. Natural winemakers in Valencia embrace sustainable farming practices, cultivating their vineyards with care and respect for the land. In the cellar, they employ minimalist techniques, allowing the grapes to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts and minimizing the use of sulfur to preserve the wine's natural flavors and aromas. The resulting wines are a true expression of Valencia's terroir, with vibrant fruit flavors, lively acidity, and a sense of place that reflects the region's coastal breezes and Mediterranean sunshine. Whether enjoyed with local seafood dishes or savored on their own, natural wines from Valencia offer a taste of Spain's winemaking heritage and a glimpse into the future of sustainable viticulture.
