The harvest is done manually, then the grape arrives to the winery, where the selection of the grape and its handmade production, ensured by the winemaker María José García, will begin. 25% of the newly finished wine performs its malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. Wine aging is 24 months in new French oak (70%); American (15%) of one year and (15%) of two years with refinement in bottle for at least 18 months.With a complex nose, predominance of mineral notes in a background of cherry jam combined with a subtle blend of roasted and smoked background. Powerful palate but with a step of silky and well-balanced tannins that make up a final that feels fatty with mineral and candied aftertaste. 12 Linajes Reserva has an elegant image, sophisticated and with personality, while the wine is represented in gold, accompanied by rescued symbols of the 12 Linajes shields, seal of the wealth oh Soria’s history.

  • New image of Valdelacierva Crianza 2016 5! Renques

    Bodegas Valdelacierva presents Valdelacierva Crianza 2016 5! Renques, the new image of the flagship wine of the winery. This new project is the result of the hard work of transmitting and teaching what Bodegas Valdelacierva is: a winery for working that has its roots in the countryside, the vineyard and in that traditional tilling that is still used in Rioja.

    The new Valdelacierva Crianza label represents a very traditional term in Rioja: Renques, which are the rows of vines that form the vineyards on an estate. The set of Renques and the number 5, together with the strains and production, give us the total bottles of this aging.

    With this new addition, the wines from Valdelacierva continue to work on the brand’s approach, which unites all the elements that define it under the same quality concept: the land, the cultivation, the vineyard and the value. With the launch of the new image of this wine, Bodegas Valdelacierva closes the family of wines: Valdelacierva rosé; Valdelacierva reserva, Valdelacierva reserva limited edition and two singular vineyard: Valdelacierva garnacha and Valdelacierva grano a grano.

    Valdelacierva Crianza 5! Renques, the details

    Bodegas Valdelacierva has managed a symbiosis between land and design, which results in the concept 5! Renques. In maths, 5! It is a factorial function that leads us to multiply 5x4x3x2x1 = 120, number of renques that we have in the estates of this crianza. This, together with the average of strains and their production, gives us the total bottles of the 2016 harvest of Valdelacierva Crianza.

    The label shows a simple and elegant line, but at the same time gives and informal and remarkable image, where we find the brand in the first place and a discreet 5! Renques, accompanied by a detailed representation of them, and the variety of wine “Solo Tempranillo”. Valdelacierva Crianza closes its image with soft lines where it gives prominence to the Denomination of Origin and the harvest. The perfect balance is achieved with the red capsule of short format or “cap” that leaves the quality of its natural cork.

    As everything coming the land, the new image of Valdelacierva Crianza has a meaning of value, authenticity and the DNA of the winery.

  • 12 Linajes, Valdelacierva and GarciGrande: wines suitable for drinking by vegan consumers

    The wines of Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz (Ribera del Duero), Bodegas Valdelacierva (Rioja) and Bodegas GarciGrande (Rueda) receive the vegan certification.

    Vegans exclude from their diet anything that comes from animal origin.


    Madrid, June 2019.- Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz, Bodegas Valdelacierva and Bodegas GarciGrande present their vegan wines. The wines 12 Linajes, Valdelacierva and Garcigrande have the necessary standards of excellence to receive the European certification, thanks to its production which excludes any ingredient of animal origin.

    Can vegans drink wine?

    In order to know the answer we must first know more about them:

    • The name “vegan” comes from the “vegan” Anglicism created from “veganian”.
    • In their diet, vegans are strictly vegetarian and completely exclude any products of animal origin.
    • When it comes to their wardrobe, they totally reject that their clothing or footwear are made from animal fabrics.
    • They avoid any product tested on animals.
    • They reject shows that involve animals.
    • Veganism should not be confused with environmentalism. They’re two distinct movements. Veganism is concerned for each animal individual and their interests, while environmentalism cares about the conservation of species in general (both animal and plant).

    Wines, like other food, at some point in their production use jelly or animal products, for example, for the settling of musts.

    If you are vegan but do not want to miss the opportunity to taste wines from the Ribera del Duero Soriana, 12 Linajes offers wines that are born from the terroir, from old and pre-phylloxera vineyards with a limited production with aging in French and American oak barrels, with a very intense and balanced nose in the mouth. 

    For those looking for different D.O.Ca Rioja wines who follow the mindfulness trend as a philosophy of life, Valdelacierva offers wines that were born from an artisanal production, with aromas of ripe red fruits sweet and full bodied with silky tannins, followed by a balanced mouthfeel and a long, rich aftertaste.

    For the new generations, who care about choosing products that do not affect the environment, the GarciGrande range offers young and fresh D.O. Rueda wines, with vegetable aromas of fresh herbs and stone fruit and subtle entry into the mouth.
