The ship starts to sail

1958, village of Baldovar. People travel to the distant Serranía de Valencia in search for wine. Those asking for Merseguera find it under the local name of Verdosilla. It is cultivated in places like the Masecillo, on the foothills of the Cerro Negro, Rascaña or the Cañada París. Wine is at the time elaborated in huge and humid underground deposits of concrete and stone that can still be seen today in our cellar. The wine is sold through a small deposit located at the entrance of the winery. We have finally inaugurated the cooperative of San Roque de Baldovar.

Cañada París, the terroir of Baldovar

100% Merseguera, 2018. The Merseguera Alpuente in its pure state: a subtle wine, fresh and mineralic, that reflects without complexes the binomial terroir-variety.

Baldovar 923

2016, Alpuente. We start our adventure, we look for the ideal place for our project: recover the natural culture of the Merseguera grape. We dream about refurbishing one of those old abandoned wineries that can be found in the area to engage with the local history and community. When the village of Baldovar opens its doors to us, we are met with an offer that we cannot refuse: resuscitate its old winery.

We have finally found our home.

“We found the heights of Baldovar lost among the clouds.”

Sarah Jane Evans MW, visit our winery

The Master of Wine and expert in Spanish wines visited different wineries of the DO Valencia last July. During her trip, she toured the Alto Turia and was fascinated with the great diversity of soils and microclimates of these subzones with so varied orography that makes the wines different. She highlighted her surprise “with the mountain viticulture that is practiced in Alto Turia and the high-quality wines that are made in this Mediterranean area.” She highlighted the enormous potential of the traditional varieties that the DO Valencia has and the commitment of the wine growers with their villages, as a source to generate employment and boost the territory.

Mencía in Baldovar, Cerro Negro

100% Mencía, 2018.
A frank and sincere wine where the variety’s features coexist perfectly with the minerality and freshness of the terroir of Cerro Negro.

Rascaña, our orange wine

Merseguera / Macabeo, 2018. The complete fermentation with the skins transmits to the wine all the aromatic power of the varieties. The Macabeo meets the Merseguera, which remains the protagonist.

Rascaña 2018, Decanter highly recommended 94 points

The prestigious British magazine Decanter values Rascaña 2018 wine with 94 points and predicts a “very promising” future for Baldovar 923.

Village wines, mountain viticulture

In this land people are recognized by the village where they were born. For this reason, from our start we seek to make village wines, vineyard wines, local wines … in short, quality wines rooted in their origin, where one can experience the hand of each winegrower, where the features of the terroir is expressed with the minor intervention possible.

Mountain wine-making requires flying very high

Not so long ago, they ripped vineyards with old vines, others were trained onto trellises. The eldest still remember … “there were vineyards everywhere… those almond trees, the cereal fields ahead, that field carved there…” but even then the remaining vineyards have kept intact their identity: altitude, clay, stone, dryness, cold and the autochthonous varieties Merseguera and Bobal and one that only the eldest remember, the Torrontes.
