Bernabeleva

Madrid

Bernabeleva translates to "the bear’s forest,” the vision of Vincente Alvarez-Villamil when he purchased this estate nd planted grenache with the dream of making wine. Due to political strife in Spain, this never came to pass, but in 2006 Vincente’s grandchildren, Diez Bulnes and Santiago Matallana Bulnes, made his vision a reality.

The estate lies on the eastern side of the Sierra de Gredo mountains, half a mile above sea level, experiencing warm days and cool nights. The vines, now 80-years-old, naturally produce low yields and intensely flavored red and white grapes. 

The red wines of Bernabeleva showcase layers of fruit and spice, while the whites exhibit zesty acidity and complex minerality.
