Sierra Norte

SIERRA NORTE

Our cellar is located in Requena (Valencia) about approximately 900 meters above sea level. The "finca" has around 60 hectares of vineyards in the village of Camporrobles, close to Utiel. The cellar produces the wine under the Denomination of Origin Utiel-Requena. Bottling started in 1998. Bodega SIERRA NORTE was born in 1995 as three partners joined and decided to take over this project and start producing their wines known as Cerro BERCIAL. We produce red wines aged in oak barriques and young red and rosé wines. All our wines are conventional and organic. The wood used in the oak barrels is a mix of American and French Allier oak. New wood each year is 40% of the total we use. The cellar, located in the town limits of Requena (Valencia) is 30 minutes by car from the capital of the province, Valencia, going towards Madrid. Traditionally, this area has produced wine for sale in large quantities in bulk and retail business, but recently some wine growers in this area have seen the importance of bottling and the big quality potential of the area, and have increased their production of quality bottled wines. Among these quality wines, our wines are, without a doubt, one of the top quality wines in the region and for sure one of the only organic quality cellars. We also want to give the local variety Bobal a main role in our wines, which we blend mainly with Tempranillo, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our cellar started producing organic wines in small quantities. This year we have significantly increased our production but our objective is always quality and not quantity. We take care in every detail of production, from the grape itself to the final product and also its presentation. At our vineyards, we grow the varieties Tempranillo, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Bobal in reds, and Macabeo, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in whites. Both our cellar and vineyards are ORGANIC-certified. What we need to mention, is once again our idea to market our wines in limited quantities and of fine high quality. We believe we have what it takes to get this done and we are looking for the right partners in each market to do so.
