Viticulturists/Winemakers: Esmeralda Garcia & Jesús Hermida

 
 
 

cacabelos, Bierzo

Santiyuste de san juan bautista, Segovia

Pagos de Nona speaks to all Verdejo (Segovia) & Bierzo can be, as a grape and region respectively. The first time I tasted their wines I became tearful, as the wines were not only brimming with life but also hope. 

Esmeralda comes from an enological background and Jesús, a skilled engineer/agronomist/viticulturalist. What bound them was their generational attachment with grapes dating back centuries. This & their adoration for rehabilitating family vineyards and those of grape-growing past makes for a duo that seems unstoppable. Their steadfast commitment to their regions wafts from every glass!
