When Jose Antonio Merayo realized his life-long dream to have his own Estate & winery, his choice of D.O. Rueda was not arbitrary. The Duero River ows through the region’s northwestern corner and several tributaries branch off from the river to form soils that are perfect for cultivating grapes. The region, located at 700 to 800 metres above sea-level, consists of at highlands, with very long, cold winters, short springs with late frosts, and dry, hot summers, only altered by untimely storms. This factor forces the vines to search for their water resources deep underground that result in grapes with perfectly balanced levels of sugar and acidity.
Today, Val de Vid owns 20 hectares of vineyards and controls another 60 hectares in the area of La Seca in the heart of Rueda, which are planted exclusively with the Verdejo variety. Using the latest technology combined with traditional vinification methods, they produce white wines of exceptional quality and a singular expression of their soil and climate.
