  • The name, "Barco de Piedra”, refers to the nickname of the Castle of Peñafiel, the “stone ship” fortress constructed in the 10th century that still stands guard over the Valladolid province. This bottling is made up of 100% Tinto Fino/Tempranillo from three parcels in the Quiñón Estate, located roughly 1.5 km north of the Duero River at 2,000-3,000 feet above sea level within the Ribera del Duero. With sustainable farming practices in place, the vines grow upon beds of clay and limestone. Upon harvest, clusters are carefully selected and cold macerated for 2-3 days before a cool fermentation takes place. An extended maceration takes place for about a week after fermentation completes, to extract more phenolics. The wine is then aged for 4 months in large, neutral casks (85% French and 15% American).

    "Inky ruby. Oak-spiced cherry-vanilla and dark berry scents and hints of coconut and cracked pepper. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering black currant, cherry preserve and bitter chocolate flavors and a touch of licorice. Youthfully chewy tannins lend grip to a long, spicy finish that leaves a sweet dark fruit preserve note behind. Raised in a combination of 85% French and 15% American oak.".

     

  •  Vinos Atlantico

    Vinos Atlántico (previously CVA) was founded in 2002 with the purpose of uniting the winemaking heritage of Alberto Orte and Patrick Mata’s families. Both of their families have been producing wine, independently, throughout Spain since the late 1800s.

    It currently produces wines in 18 different appellations within the Iberian Peninsula. Its fundamental mission is to discover new production areas, and unique soils and to recover native varieties, always in search of great vineyard sites that can produce consistently superior wines compared to neighboring vineyards.
