Castro Ventosa

About Castro Ventosa

Castro Ventosa was founded by the Perez family in 1752 and the family owns the estate ever since. The Perez family owns 75 hectares of Mencía vineyards in Bierzo making them the biggest owners of this varietal within the Bierzo D.O. The Bierzo D.O. is located in the northwest of the Province of Castilla y León, just above Portugal. Bierzo is a small wine region in the Northwestern “shoulder” of Spain, not far across the national border from Portugal’s Tras-os-Montes, north of the Douro. It’s another of those wine places that you may not have heard of … yet. But there’s a good chance that you’ll be hearing a lot more about Bierzo – and the Mencia grape – before very long, as some very serious players in the Spanish wine industry are hard at work there. Bierzo is in a small valley surrounded by mountains. This exceptional geographical position gives the area a specific microclimate. The low altitude prevents frost in winter and the warm summer months provide ideal conditions to grow exceptional vines. The soil is a mixture of quartzite and slate.
