Germán Blanco (Casa Aurora)

From Germán Blanco of Quinta Milú, comes this project from Bierzo!

We get tiny amounts of these very small-production wines. Sourced from vineyards that belonged to German's great grandmother in Bierzo Alto, just outside of the DO of Bierzo. Garnacha Tintorera, Garnacha, Mencia, Godello, and Doña Blanca are all planted here and are vinified as a field blend. These eighty-plus-year-old vines​ are situated between 800-1000 meters, farmed organically, and of course fermented with native yeasts and little SO2 just before bottling.

For more about this talented young winemaker, visit the Quinta Milú and La Bicicleta Voldadora pages.
