"Navaherreros" Blanco - dry white wine which is made from grapes of two varieties - Albilo and Macabeo. Age of vines varies from 25 to 80 years. The harvest is picked by hand. Maceration of each variety of grapes is done separately. Maturing on fine lees is carried out in French oak barrels capacity 500 and 600 liters. The wine is bottled without filtering, so the presence of a small residue may be in it.
History Bernabeleva winery dates back to 1923, when the famous doctor Vicente Alvarez Villamil, a native of Madrid, bought a plot of land in the foothills of the San Martin de Valdeiglesias. He named his property "Bernabeleva", which means "Bear Forest". In choosing the name he was guided by the fact that these lands were marked by carved centuries ago from the large boulders bears dedicated to the Roman goddess of the hunt. In the next decade there was political instability in the country, which grew into a civil war. The family managed to keep their possessions, but to realize his dream for the production of wine Vincent failed.
In 2006, two great-grandchildren Vincent - Juan Diez and Santiago Matallana Bulnes Bulnes - took the responsibility to realize the dream of their ancestors. In his possession they found vines older than 80 years, which is quite rare in this region. Today Bernabeleva winery has 35 hectares of old vines, which are divided on the slopes at an altitude of 600 to 830 meters above sea level. 80% of the production of the winery is exported to all corners of the globe.
