In Vino Veritas expands to Spain
We are incredibly pleased to announce that In Vino Veritas is growing again, this time from the old world country of Spain. Why Spain? That's easy. It is arguably one of the best Value-Producing countries in the world. Here you will find high quality, interesting character and rich offerings of both textured reds and fresh, salty whites. Climate influences the wines in marvellous ways and we often see ancient vines being coerced with modern methods as the generations of wine makers succeed each other.
Bodega Valenciso is a small boutique winery located in Ollauri in the heart of Riojo Alta, where big bold ripe wines meld with earthy flavours to straddle the old world with the new. Since 1998 founders Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso (whose surnames combined to create the brand) have combined their prior 30 years of vineyard experience at Bodega Palacio to create world class wines that bridge traditional and modern Rioja. With a focus on Reserva (100% Tempranillo), they use only grapes from vineyards in Rioja Alta, as they balance French Oak aging with bold fruits- always endeavouring to avoid over extraction. Their winemaking has been widely recognized for its excellence, noted by past international accolades including a 96 from Decanter and a 93 from Wine Advocate.
We are thrilled to have them join the In Vino Veritas family and look forward to bringing this amazing wine to the Atlantic Canadian market soon!
