Rueda it’s not only a wine, it’s an experience, which I invite you to live with me. With this visit to Rueda I discovered “the nature of Rueda wines”. They explain me that this nature is due to the terrain, the weather conditions of the area and the personality of its autochthonous grape variety, the Verdejo grape.
In addition, in my trip through Rueda I have been able to verify the passion of its people for what they do, the love with which they work the vineyards, the wineries always to the latest trend, where tradition and new technologies are combined with eagerness to continue producing white wines that increasingly with followers nationally and internationally.
All of this results in the Verdejos from Rueda, young, fresh, fruity wines … Perfect wines for all palates, for wine lovers and for those who are still discovering this wonderful world. After my experience I invite you to cool a bottle and let yourself be seduced by its color, its aroma and its flavor.
I have been especially surprised by the lands, carefully cared, on stony ground, in dry lands of which it seems incredible that they can be emerging so green vines, so full of life. I have walked among vineyards, where they explain me how can be grown, which will mark the kind of harvest to be made.
Did you know that most of the harvest is carried out during the night to prevent the heat from harming the grapes? In this way the raw material enters the cellars in the best conditions.
It’s indescribable the pleasure of drinking a Verdejo Rueda with views to the vineyards … from there, with my suit I felt the “Lord of Rueda”, with the grandeur of the lands in the horizon.
During the tours by car, there is no doubt that we are in land of vineyards. They make you feel free, rejuvenated, grateful to be in a land to which you have the feeling of belonging.
As I was tasting their wines, and changing the looks for each winery, I began to understand why Rueda wines are characterized by being perfect for any occasion. From the aperitif in the morning until late at night, you can accompany each moment with a drink, becoming different pleasures, with your own personality, as if the wine evolves with you and how you feel at each moment of the day.
I continued my visit to Rueda through his wineries, each one different, each one with its own personality but which ended up joining in a way of understanding winemaking that is what allows Rueda wines to have an unmistakable personality what differentiates them from any other white variety that we can find.
He aprendido que Rueda es un vino para compartir, con el que ensalzar esas ocasiones que te ofrece la vida y que a veces nos cuesta reconocer. Prueba la experiencia de invitar a una copa de Rueda a alguien que aprecies, y dejaros llevar por la conversación y los matices del vino.
I learned that Rueda is a wine to share, with which to praise those occasions that life offers you and that sometimes we can not recognize. Try the experience of inviting a glass of Rueda to someone you appreciate, and let carried away by the conversation and the nuances of the wine.
We finish the route by Rueda with a spectacular sunset in the vineyards, surrounded by vines, the smell of the countryside and the cold wine in hand.
Without any doubt, I’ll be back!
