Veronica Ortega Ramon Valle Mencia – COPY 2019

Vol- 75cl

Verónica Ortega Cobrana is a wine made with Mencía, Palomino, Doña Blanca, Godello and other varieties from a vineyard that is over 90 years old, located at 750 metres and planted on weathered slate and clay soils.

They are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes. Once they arrive at the winery, the whole bunches are macerated in open cone-shaped wooden foudres of 3000 litres, where they ferment with native yeasts. The malolactic fermentation and the ageing take place in 228-litre French oak barrels and 800-litre amphorae for 13 months.

After a stint studying science—chemistry, to be precise—Verónica Ortega soon realised that it wasn’t the inside of a laboratory where she longed to spend her days. In fact, it was quite the opposite kind of scientific playground that she had in mind.

? Victoria didn’t grow up amongst winemakers. Her path to the vines was part and parcel (pun intended) thanks to a realisation that there was another type of chemical reaction that piqued her interest. After her first harvest in the magical vines of Priorat—under the esteemed guidance of Álvaro Palacios and Daphne Glorian, followed by time spent in Burgundy (at the mythical Domaine de la Romanée-Conti amongst others).

Veronica fell head over heels with the world of winemaking and, in her own words, “never went back to [her] place again. Just for the holidays!" Now that’s love.
