Description of the Bodega by the Bodega:
Founded in 2000, the Bodega was created with the philosophy of elaborating wines from the native varietial, Mencía, using 40 to 100 year old vines which express the complete terroir of Bierzo. Our philosophy is very different than the ChÃƒÂ¢teau concept where one only uses grapes located from the vineyards surrounding the Bodega, whereas we rescue and revive the old vineyards throughout the Bierzo to elaborate the single variety (Mencía). However, in order for us to elaborate a single varietal, we are required to meticulously study the grounds and microclimates of Bierzo. Fortunately, we formed an agreement with the University of Leon to offer us both the know-how to study the terroir, and the technology to ensure clean, safe and efficient winemaking facilities. From temperature and humidity controlled rooms to using the best French and Spanish oak barrels, our bodega is committed to creating the best representation we possibly can of our native grape, Mencía.
Dominio Dostares and Bodega Lusco do Miño are two projects of Dominio de Tares in Pajares de los Oteros, León. Over the course of the month of June, as we explored wines from Bierzo in our Virtual Tasting, we wrote extensively on these wines; however, we did not provide you with a complete bodega profile. Overall, I can tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed these wines, as you can tell from our tasting notes below, and would happily seek them out again. Obviously, Dominio de Tares makes wonderful wines and hope we will be able to visit their bodega this September.
