The Spanish winery José Pariente #wine #Spain #rueda #valladolid
In the heart of the Rueda vineyards, the José Pariente winery overlooks a flat landscape of stony soils subjected to a harsh continental climate. In that land of ancient history are rooted the Verdejo vines, a native variety which they cultivate with effort and dedication to elaborate white wines of great elegance, freshness and complexity.
It is the history of a family tradition bound up with a passion for fine wine. Fifty years ago, José Pariente worked these vineyards to produce his own craft white wines. When his daughter Victoria Pariente succeeded him she created the present-day winery and named the first bottled wines. A little later they gained strength and continuity when Victoria’s husband and daughter joined the cellar. The third generation of the family is already an active part of the project.
In 2008, the winery took a decisive step and they openned new premises between the villages of Rueda and La Seca. this solid and practical volume is helping to shape a new vinicultural landscape that is very much of the here and now.
Some of their most famous wines are the Varietal Verdejo, Varietal Sauvignon Blanc, Verdejo Fermentado en Barrica, Cuvée Especial and Apasionado.
