The article gives a nice softball recap of the region and touches on the indigenous grape of Mencia, while providing 10 additional so-so tasting notes of the Beirzo wines that can be found in the US. The best part for all of you readers is the chance to get the names of the importers who are bringing these wines in so that you can find them. I really like Bierzo (pronouced: bee-er-tho), and hope to make it up there this year; but for now, I’ll have to be satisfied with tasting Mencia from Madrid. If you have a chance to purchase one, I highly suggest it; and afterwards, you can post the label on our Catavino Flickr Group along with a tasting note!
