Spanish Wineries By Region

Bodegas Real Winer's Finca Marisanchez is one of most stunning and idiosyncratic vineyards in the Southern area of Castile La Mancha. Located in the historic fields of Campo de Montiel, it has preserved, from medieval times the three quintessentially Mediterranean crops: the grapevine, the olive tree and cereals. It is in the heart of Finca Marisanchez that the second generation family cellar, Bodegas Real Winery has stood since 1989. The goal of Bodegas Real Winery, from the beginning has been to transfer the concept of the “Chateau” to the lands of La Mancha and to make wines of high quality from their own vines. For that reason, the philosophy of Bodegas Real Winery people is to implant in all their wines the force of the four elements from which life originates: clayey soil, the warm summer breeze, the water of the Jabalón river and the sun that filters in the grapes and enriches them with its red fire. These four pillars and their passion to enjoy them and pass them on, are the keys to the production of Bodegas Real Winery wines. In 1984 the property was acquired by the Barroso family--one that was passionate for the world of wine growing. After a careful analysis of the surroundings and the characteristics of the soil, they began an ambitious and modern vine growing plan, planting vines in further extensions that were selected especially for this project. The cellar premises, which are an essential part in the winemaking process, were finished five years later in 1989. Bodegas Real Winery had already applied the most modern winemaking and fermentation technology, making them pioneers in the region and the first vintage yield was created in 1990. Bodegas Real Winery Vega Ibor Crianza has a lively cherry colour with touches of purple. In the nose, it offers an intense aroma of blackcurrant and liquorice with hints of cocoa blended with an earthy mineral character. It has a vigorous and broad flavour with the presence of young wood well combined with fruit. It has full body and meatiness (made up of sweet tannins). It is round, clear with volume of a long finish and rich intense aftertaste. Bodegas Real Winery Ciudad Real - Valdepeñas DirecciónCtra. Ctra.
