- Viñas del Vero owes its name to a river of the Somontano district, at the foot of the Pyrenees, famed for its gullies, canyons and ravines. The company Viñas del Vero, S.A. was set up in Somontano at the end of 1986 following the acquisition of 550 hectares of land in Barbastro and other nearby villages. In 1987 work began to replant the land with vines of the traditional regional varieties (Tempranillo, Moristel, Garnacha and Macabeo), along with those from other sources (Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir). Viñas de Vero is now the leading winery of the Somontano region in terms of the volume and quality of its output. The company owns 700 hectares of vineyards, and produces 5 million bottles per year. Its wines can be found in more than 40 countries It is one of Spain's most state of the art wineries in terms of both worldwide technology and the style of wines it produces.
Their most notable approach to local grapes is Secastilla, a separate project focused on the recovery of old Garnacha vines in the Secastilla valley, barely 40 kilometres away from the Pyrenees. The range includes Secastilla white, the entry level red La Miranda de Secastilla, a blend of Syrah and indigenous Parraleta and a white Grenache La Miranda.
While not certified, Vinas del Vero practice organic viticulture.
Made from ancient bush vines, this is a unique and outstanding wine. Complex, earthy and spicy Garnacha fruit dominates the nose, followed by a rich and dense palate with intense fruit and balanced tannins with a long finish.
