Where The Wines Come From

Sierra de Salamanca VC

Sierra de Salamanca, nestled in the western part of Spain, is gaining recognition for its natural winemaking practices. Situated within the broader Castilla y León region, Sierra de Salamanca is characterized by its rugged terrain, slate soils, and cool climate. Natural winemakers in this remote and mountainous area prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Rufete, Tempranillo, and Rufete Blanca with minimal intervention. By eschewing chemical additives and focusing on natural fermentation, they produce wines that reflect the region's unique terroir and the purity of the fruit. Sierra de Salamanca's natural wines are known for their elegance, freshness, and vibrant fruit flavors, with Rufete offering bright red berry notes, Tempranillo contributing depth and structure, and Rufete Blanca showcasing crisp acidity and floral aromatics. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Sierra de Salamanca remains a hidden gem in the world of natural wine, offering a taste of Spain's rich winemaking heritage and commitment to sustainability with every bottle.
