Utiel-Requena: Only DO producing wines non-stop during the last 2500 years
DO Utiel-Requena is a small plateau in the interior of the province of Valencia, at 70 kms from the mediterranean sea and 700 meters above sea level with a surface of vineyards of 40.000 hectares. The land has Mediterranean characteristics but continental influences, being the local autochthon grape the BOBAL and GARNACHA TINTORERA, both used in our wines.
Rodolfo is fully dedicated to winemaking and leads the development of his own style wines in Bodegas Vegalfaro, located where a 2.500 years old Iberian cellar has been discovered. We imitate ancient techniques, like growing local grapes, aging in terracotta amphorae and using organic procedures: the land, the winery, the wines and the production methods are all organic certified.
