Verdejo Menade, Castilla y Leon, Spain

£13.50

Bodegas Menade may have been founded as recently as 2005, but Alejandra, Marco and Richard are the sixth generation of a longstanding wine family.

The formal family history starts in 1820, when our forebears tended vineyards in a wide variety of sites that today form part of DO Rueda. Vinification was effected in an underground facility in La Seca hewn out of solid rock at the beginning of the 19th Century.

Traditionally each generation of our family had used this historic site as their initial launching pad as each embarked on its particular quality crusade; but when it was our turn, in the early 2000s, we decided on a totally fresh start not just philosophically (our tenets to respect nature and go back to the old ways) but in a location of our own – with Alejandra running exports and communications, Marco the viticulturist, and Richard the oenologist.
