About the Winery
Located in the foothills of Murcia in the arid southeast of Spain, Bodegas Lavia’s Monastrell vineyards are 100+ years old and have great potential in a future of climate change in Spain. These vigorous old vines are located strategically in two separate valleys, with two very different microclimates, at an altitude of 800m asl. Winemaker Laura Ramos makes the best use of the highly concentrated Monastrell fruit to craft organic, elegant wines. Laura has reimagined the entire project and, starting with the 2020 vintage release in the USA, two of the wines are delineated by the specific valley in which they are grown (Aceniche and Venta del Pino), while the third, entry level wine is a blend of fruit from both valleys. Harvest, fermentation, and aging of grapes from each plot is completed separately. Because total winery production is only 40,000 bottles per year, Massanois has reserved much of the highly regarded 2020 vintage for our national markets!
