Dehesa la Granja 2011
Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez from Castilla y Leon - Grupo Pesquera
As well as being tremendously impressive, the extensive wine caves, carved out of the rock during the 18th century, are the perfect place for wine and wood to court each other: silence, darkness, constant temperatures and balanced humidity.
The result is Dehesa la Granja wine; noble and intense ... “that refuses to abandon our palate or our memory.”
Where time tastes of memories and aromas are fashioned Dehesa la Granja has fully integrated into the environment of land, it respects deeply; Zamora. Regarded as one of the most picturesque estates in the wine sector, its almost 800 hectares stretch magnificently along the banks of the River Guareña.
This bodega boasts an impressive underground cellar where its famous wines sleep peacefully. For 17 years, from 1750 to 1767, in darkness and silence were broken only by the sound of digging, 125 men gradually gained ground on the unforgiving rock until excavating over 3,000 m² of extraordinary maze-like tunnels. As well as making wine, the estate is also dedicated to growing other crops and to livestock farming, which allows it to sell chickpeas, cheese, and extra virgin olive oil, all grown and produced on the estate.
Serve between 17ºC.
