The wines of Bodega Vega de Tera – not only expressive and of the highest quality, but also biodynamic and produced with great respect.
From the humble dream of the child of a Spanish farming family, the Vega de Tera winery, which is extremely well known in Spain today, arose over the years or decades, through strong willpower and active commitment. The small but fine bodega only has a total area under vines of around 25 hectares, but due to its biodynamic viticulture it is known far beyond the country’s borders for its excellent wines in organic quality.
The bodega is located in the northwest of the country in the Spanish wine-growing region of Castile and Leon. The winegrowing family has settled in the plateau surrounded by mountains near the small town of Zamora, on the banks of the River Tera, and has been producing exceptional wine there right from the start. Not only the surrounding landscape and the prevailing climate have a great influence on the character of the wines, but also the mineral and extremely fertile clay soil. Locals also attribute a positive influence on the quality of the wines to the nearby Way of St. James, as its aura is omnipresent.
Traditional but also modern grape varieties in harmony with nature
The cultivation of the Bodega Vega de Tera is dominated by local red wine grape varieties such as Tinta de Toro, Prieto Picudo and Tempranillo. But internationally renowned red wine grape varieties such as Syrah and Merlot are also cultivated in a highly professional manner in the vineyards of the bodega. In addition to the predominant red wine grape varieties, the winemaker family also cultivates a typical Spanish white wine grape variety, the Verdejo, which should not be underestimated. The white wines made from Verdejo not only have a great variety of aromas, but also a wide range of aromas and a balanced structure.
