Castilla y Leon Wines
Castilla y Leon is the largest wine region in Spain. Spanish wines, both red and white, from Castilla y Leon date back from the 1st Century BC. Nowadays the region boasts several Denominación de Origens (DO) such as Ribera del Duero, Bierzo, Toro and Rueda. Red wines dominate this region and Tempranillo is undoubtedly the main grape variety followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Meanwhile Verdejo and Viura dominate Castilla y Leon white wines scene.
Verdejo is a white wine grape variety from Rueda in central Spain. It is the most cultivated grape variety in the country and is usually found in blends alongside Viura or Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Generally speaking Verdejo wines are showing herbaceous, nutty flavours, great balance and a little aging potential. As a rule, a true Rueda DO white wines must include 50% Verdejo or Sauvignon Blanc. The variety’s origins are not very clear but some say it originates from Castilla y Leon.
