Mesta Tempranillo –
A pure expression of nature and heritage
Made exclusively with grapes selected from the best varieties of the Albariño variety, we obtain an elegant greenish-yellow wine, bright and very attractive. Wine of great balance, for its freshness and its fruity tone.
Mesta wines are part of the Fontana Bodegas & Viñedos producers group located in Ucles in Spain. They are a leading producer of Estate wines, owning over 600 hectares, and managing a further 400 hectares of sustainably farmed, high-altitude vineyards in Castile, Central Spain. It has been owned by the Cantarero Morales family for over 30 years.
The Mesta was a powerful alliance of shepherds in medieval Castile, who controlled the “cañadas”: traditional rights-of-way for migrating sheep. to this day, the “cañadas” are protected from being blocked or built upon. Our vineyards are nestled deep in the land of The Mesta, and are still passed over by flocks on their annual migration – a reminder of ancient rights, and a cultural cue for continued co-existence with nature. Through sustainable viticulture and respectful winemaking, we produce wines of great purity, reflecting the unique personality of our land and grape varieties.
