About the Winery
The expansive Venta La Vega spans 850 hectares in the arid southeast of Spain with an average altitude of 900 m asl. It is the largest continuous plot of organic agricultural property in the EU, with 250 of these limestone-laden hectares nestled within the mountains of the Sierra de Mugrón, resulting in multiple microclimates. Bodegas Venta La Vega crafts two lines of wine featuring Garnacha Tintorera, the Spanish indigenous version of Alicante Bouschet: Ternario (Raul Perez as winemaker) and Adaras (Laura Ramos as winemaker). The winemakers’ philosophy is minimal intervention, short maceration, and reduced impact of wood. Together they have succeeded in creating wines with an excellent price/value ratio which are exquisitely balanced, fresh, and elegant.
