WINEMAKER Monteabellón

For many generations the Garcia family have been fully dedicated to viticulture. In an effort to take advantage of all their knowledge and experience, the current generation of the family decided to establish Bodegas Monteabellon, where the passion for viticulture and the art of winemaking is reflected. The winery is located in Nava de Roa, between Penafiel and Aranda de Duero, in the centre of the Ribera del Duero appellation.

The vineyards comprise a total of 70 hectares, spread across numerous plots. They are spread around the Nava de Roa commune, ranging from vineyards on the valley floor to hillside vineyards higher up. Finca La Blanquera is a single vineyard with pure white limestone soil - hence the name - right at the top of the hills (altitude 950m). Soils are sandy gravel on the valley floor, sand with clay and limestone at mid-level and poor rocky limestone higher up.

Monteabellon is a great, stylish, modern Ribera del Duero at very attractive prices. The winemaker and creative driving force behind this recently created bodega is Isaac Fernandez, nephew of the great Mariano Garcia (legendary ex-Vega Sicilia winemaker). Isaac worked for many years alongside Mariano and his sons at Bodegas Mauro, and the Mauro style is clearly evident in the wines of Monteabellon...exuberant fruit, rich chocolately weight in the mouth, classy oak integration, sophisticated tannins, good balance and nice lift on the finish.
