Spanish Bodega Profile – Dominio Dostares Valencia de Don Juan – Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León

Founded in 2004 by the highly-respected Dominio de Tares estate in D.O. Bierzo with the objective of recuperating and maximizing León’s Prieto Picudo variety. Reduced to a few hundred acres of old vines in the hands of local cooperatives, this variety had for years produced prickly, refreshing dry rosés, despite its high levels of color, extract, acidity and alcohol. Having acquired approximately 75% of the old vineyards, Dominio Dostares has applied production methods perfected in Bierzo to produce high-impact reds to challenge Spain’s highest level. Début in 2007.
