Our online feature this week is the Virgen de las Viñas Monte Rodrigo Tempranillo (La Mancha, Spain) – $13.99 (regularly $17.49).

The Virgen de las Viñas winery was founded in 1961 by 17 small farmers producing olive oil from the municipality. After a continuous improvement effort, the cooperative has nowadays almost 2,000 members and owns 23,000 hectares of vineyards.

The vines are planted in soils whose characteristics and composition are ideal for vine growing. The scarce rainfall and the heat during summertime produces practically an organic wine. Their wine’s quality is amazing considering their high production rate, more than 150 million litres of wine and must per season.

Over the last couple of decades, the winery has masterfully combined traditional practices with production with the most cutting-edge technical innovations, positioning itself at the forefront of the wine sector. It is one of the largest producers of wine in all of Spain.

Juicy and easy drinking, this light red would be lovely for Al Fresco picnic drinking with its black fruits and no oak. Raspberries abound alongside fresh acidity and just the right amount of tannins to invite another sip. A fine value to enjoy with some Manchego!
