Elegance Unearthed: The 2019 Bodegas Volver 'Volver' Tempranillo

Reviving the Essence of La Mancha

The 2019 Bodegas Volver 'Volver' Single Vineyard Tempranillo stands as a beacon of La Mancha, Spain's rich, often overlooked, viticultural heritage. Crafted by the visionary duo Jorge Ordoñez and Rafael Canizares, Bodegas Volver was established in 2004 to spotlight the unique terroirs of Spain's lesser-known regions. This Tempranillo, emanating from the venerable soils of the Finca Los Juncares vineyard, encapsulates the duo's commitment to showcasing the depth and diversity of Spanish winemaking.

Terroir and Tradition

Nestled in the heart of La Mancha, the Finca Los Juncares vineyard spans 29 hectares (72 acres) of sandy, iron, and limestone-rich soils.

Embracing traditional viticulture practices, these organically goblet-trained vines are meticulously tended by hand, ensuring a harvest that's both sustainable and expressive of the vineyard's unique character.
