Formed in 2010, Diez Siglos is a collective of around 70 small to medium growers - who are working together to continue the winemaking traditions of Rueda. They use their combined expertise, their best vineyards, and a new winery with the latest technology to produce great wines typical of the region.Verdejo is at the heart of what they do - the clue is in the name - and their wines are structured and bright with fruit at the fore.

The excellent quality grapes are sourced from re-grafted old bush vines, planted on gravel land. Grapes are picked at night to ensure they are cool when they reach the winery, where it is fermented for 22 days at 14 ºC. Then it stays on its fine lees for 4 months.
“Wonderful variety of flavours and sufficient structure to match food made this a stand-out. The nose alone ranges from stone fruit and star fruit to lemon sorbet, citrus peel and musky lilies. ‘Perfumed and peachy, this has bright flavours of exotic fruit, good length and a mineral twang,’ said York & Albany’s Nigel Lister. Match with prawn or pork dishes.” Sommelier Wine Awards 2013, Judges Comments
