Producer Profile

Dominio del Urogallo

Dominio del Urogallo, a small estate nestled along Spain's northern coast, was established by the trailblazer Fran Asencio, who also crafts wines in Bierzo and the Sherry Triangle. With an unwavering commitment to producing wines that mirror his refined, aromatic, and pure preferences, Asencio's intense personality is matched only by his dedication to his craft. In Asturias, he has masterfully harnessed the symbiotic relationship between soil, climate, and local grape varieties, cultivating vineyards on steep slopes according to the principles of biodynamic viticulture. These vineyards, situated on soils composed of slate, anthracite, and quartz, are a testament to his passion for the land and its untapped potential in the world of wine.
