In the 1960s, José Pariente began producing artisanal white wines from a raw material of exceptional quality: Verdejo grapes from the vineyards of Rueda. He practised a meticulous viticulture and had faith in his soil, in quality and in the pleasure of making wine. His desire to produce great white wines is the raison d’être of the present-day winery, which his daughter Victoria Pariente established in 1998.
In 2008 the winery opened a solid and functional new building between Rueda and La Seca, which commands spectacular views over the vineyards and far beyond. The facility is equipped with the latest technology to ensure the most careful elaboration and bring out the distinctive features of each wine. Our must coolers, macerators and stabilization chamber, among other resources, enable us to cool and maintain the temperature of the grapes, must and wine during processing, vitally important in making white wines. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, French oak barrels or oval concrete vats, an innovative technique.

A SWEET WINE SURPRISING FOR ITS FRESHNESS AND COMPLEXITY: Pale yellow with greenish reflections. Its aromatic expression is not usual in sweet wines due to its exceptional combination of vegetable notes and tropical fruits, memories of fresh cut grass and a hint of minerality. On the mouth there is a pleasant and very fine velvety sensation. It keeps the features of the grape Sauvignon Blanc, a fresh and clean elegance. It is a high intense wine, well-structured and long, round. There is a perfect combination among acid, alcohol and sugar.
In the visual phase, the wine shows a brilliant straw yellow with greenish reflections. The aroma, of great intensity, is elegant, fresh and complex. It has a markedly fruity tone that spans the range of white fruits (pear, peach), citrus and passion fruit. There are also hints of fennel and garrigue on a balsamic aniseed ground. In the mouth the notes of fresh fruit appear again. Unctuous, sweet and elegant with a slight touch of bitterness in the finish characteristic of the Verdejo variety. It has a big structure that favors its persistence.
