Loess is a winemaker effort with two parallel sides. Both projects aim to create terroir wines, expressing the characteristics of their select vineyards.
Loess makes reference to the soil type in the specific vineyards of this project. Located in Roa, Burgos, the hearth of Ribera del Duero, these soils appear as aeolian sediment formed by the accumulation of wind-blown silt. The tempranillo grape, or “tinta del pais” as known locally, is sourced from 74 acres classified as excellent in the official zoning of the DO. These ratings were commissioned by the regulatory council and the studies performed by the local university.
Two Verdejo whites from he neighbor region of Rueda complement the project. Loess created an Oak Barrel fermented Verdejo that is been acclaimed by the critics as one on the top Rueda wines in the market. Loess expert winemaking is matched with an unique approach to product image, creating true originals.
