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.

Canada Paris, the terroir of Baldovar

100% Merseguera, 2018. The Merseguera from the villages of 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 height of Baldovar lost in the clouds.”

Sarah Jane Evans MW, visits our cellar

5/07/2019. The Master of Wine and an expert in Spanish wines visited different wineries of the DO Valencia last July. During her trip, she took a tour of Alto Turia and was fascinated by the great diversity of soils and microclimates of these sub-areas with orographies so varied that it makes the wines different. He highlighted his surprise “with the mountain viticulture that is practiced in Alto Turia and the high altitude wines that are made in this area of the Mediterranean.” She highlighted the enormous potential of the traditional varieties that DO Valencia has and the commitment of winemakers to their towns.

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.

Berandía, Bobal de altura

Long aging wine that transmits all the freshness and vivacity of the north-facing plot from which it comes. This wine is the Bobal of Alto Túria.

Para hacer vino de altura hay que volar muy alto

Less time ago, some uprooted vineyards of old vines, others were transformed into espalier. Older people still remember … “it was all vineyards … those almond trees, the cereal from here on, that tilled field there …” But even so they have not lost what some call identity: altitude, clay, stone, little water, cold and Merseguera and Bobal autochthonous varieties and another that only the oldest people remember, Torrontés.

Pieza la Moza, our rose

Bobal / Tempranillo, 2019. Mountain rosé. Wine from Bobales and Tempranillos on coral soils and fossilized oysters. Raised in a jar, used oak and steel tanks. It transmits the salinity and minerality of its soil, very gastronomic.

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.
