Variety of main grape: Verdejo de Castilla
Bodegas Barco del Corneta, with the winemaker and winemaker Beatriz Herranz.
Barco del Corneta is a white wine made with Verdejo grown in Tierra de Castilla, in the Cantarranas area, located in Alcazarén (Valladolid) with some very old vines, around 150 years old. The wine area is known as La Seca, ideal for the cultivation of vineyards for its altitude conditions, more than 700 meters, climatic, continental thermal and geological contrasts, its soil is made up of siliceous sands and boulders, and the subsoil of clay and limestone in its deepest layers. The plots where the Verdejo is grown are of the family of Beatriz Herranz, winemaker from the Valladolid area, who applies an ecological viticulture, respecting the environment and without irrigation, which allows to obtain the true expression of the grape. The elaboration of the wine Barco del Corneta is handmade: vintage in small plastic baskets, pressing without destemming, native yeasts and fermentation is carried out in used oak barrels, in contact with its lees for 8 or 9 months.
