At last the wonderful Mencia
grape from Bierzo
in the north western corner of the province of Castilla y Leon
, Spain is gaining wider recognition.

All the vines in the Las Tres Filas vineyard are eighty or more years old and the result is a medium to full bodied wine with pleasingly supple structure and generous flavours of black fruits, violets and cloves.Suitable for Vegans
