PostHeaderIcon Historical Wine tasting Vera de Estenas

The historic winery Vera de Estenas, held on June 15 an exclusive and limited historical tasting of DO Utiel-Requena. We went the first private cellar of the region that bottled Reserva and Gran Reserva wines varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as the first to develop an aging of white wines with Chardonnay grapes and how could it be otherwise, we went pioneers in Bobal grape growing old and produce great wines from this variety.

For over 30 years, we've saved a sensational sample of the best years in our cellar, so that today we have the privilege of tasting wines that were developed in the early 80s and it is an adventure to know how have evolved and what we can find in the bottle.

We have prepared an exclusive tasting, where only one group of privileged we know the passage of time and what these wines in store for us as curious. The vintages to taste are: 1982,1983,1985,1991, 1993,1998,1999 and 2000.

Our proposal is to meet on June 15 at the winery, after inscription, and enjoy historic 8 wines cellar hand and the prestigious Sommelier, Pere Mercado. From 11 am to start our tasting and end it with a casual meal among all participants to enjoy good wine and good friends.
