More Info: Botas de Barro is a range of wines produced in Spanish regions with great winemaking traditions. Each bottle is a celebration of every pair of boots that have walked through the vineyards over generations, ensuring the preservation of the vines and therefore the quality of the grapes produced.
Rueda is undoubtedly one of the most important white wine producing regions in Spain following its modernisation in the 1990's.
With its indigenous grape varietal, VERDEJO, the region produces fresh wines with good acidity and an incredible aromatic intensity.
The character of Rueda is defined by three elements: its varietal Verdejo, its continental climate and its gravelly soils. The grape Verdejo has lived in the area since the XI century, brought to Spain by the Mozarabes. It produces wines with herbaceous and tropical fruit aromas and good acidity. The wines are full-bodied, slightly bitter and yet burst with fruit flavours, producing a unique sensation on the palate.
