Overview

A terrible name really, but the cease and desist order tied our hands. Laderas de Leonilla comes from a 4 ha vineyard tucked away close to the western border of Bierzo in the Sil valley near Corullón. This steep, north-facing site on clay and slate soils is primarily Mencia with smaller plantings of Garnacha and Doña Blanca.
