Our Road To Rueda
At the start of the 70s, Vinos de los Herederos del Marques de Riscal decided to add a white wine to its product range. After two years’ trials, the Rueda region was the one chosen to make it. Faithful to its pioneering spirit, Marques de Riscal created a new, young, fresh and fruity white wine in a region more famous for its sherry-style amontillados and olorosos. Other bodegas followed us, and the appellation of the D.O Rueda was set up in 1983.

Greenish-yellow colour. The nose has a marked Verdejo varietal aroma with medium intensity and hints of fennel, herbs, white blossom, pear and peach. It has a fresh, unctuous, very smooth mouth-feel, with a long, round finish. Its good acidity together with a period of ageing on its finest lees helps to keep its fresh taste longer and preserves all its aromatic complexity. This wine does not aim to impress with a powerful nose, but rather reveals a more elegant, complex varietal character. These are wines which can still be enjoyed even 24-30 months after the harvest.
A bright, straw-yellow colored wine. As you expect from a Verdejo wine, on the nose it has high aromatic intensity, with tropical fruit and hints of fennel and fresh grass. In the mouth it is both syrupy smooth and refreshing, with a slightly bitter finish which is typical of the variety making it long and pleasant to drink. Overall it is a fresh, well-balanced wine.
