- Viñas del Vero owes its name to a river in the Somontano district of Spain. The source of the Vero river lies in the foothills of the Pyrenees, and it is famous for its ravines, canyons and gorges. Viñas del Vero is the pioneering winery of the Somontano D.O. region, which features a rainfall of 600 mm, an average temperature of 11ºC, extremely cold winters and short summers, and a wide range of soils (clay, limestone, rock, silt, erosional glacis), microclimates and grape varieties: local varieties as well as Garnacha, Tempranillo, Moristel, Parraleta and Macabeu, along with Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinot Noir, which go to make a wide variety of wines under the name of Viñas del Vero, Secastilla and Blecua.
The vineyards from which the red variety for Viñas del Vero Rosado were planted between 1988 and 2000. They are at an altitude of between 350 and 450metres above sea level and a North-South orientation. The soils are Miocene, sandy and very stony.
The varieties that make up this wine have very different growing cycles so were harvested at different times: the Merlot in mid-September and the Tempranillo at the end of the month. The two varieties went through the same process: the grapes were de-stemmed, crushed, chilled and placed in tanks for as long as necessary (different in each instance) for the must to turn the desired colour. At that point the free-run juice was run off using gravity alone and fermented at 16ºC.
Brilliant clear pale cherry red in colour, with aromas of fresh red fruits and wild berries, perfectly integrated over a lightly herbaceous background.

Likewise, the Peñín Tasting Committee, made up of four wine experts, has recognised, with 92 points, the uniqueness of the Vinas del Vero Merlot Tempranillo Rosado.
