Overview

The Paramos de Nicasia Blanco is sourced from El Pinar, a vineyard in Rueda in the village of Torrecilla de la Abadesa. Totaling 1.5 hectares in size, El Pinar is planted with 50-60 year old Verdejo in sandy soils with a subsoil of clay limestone. Paramos is Spanish for “moors” or vast open plains that are exposed to challenging weather – in Castilla y Leon it is the harsh continental climate of cold winters and hot summers and the nearly constant winds that binds these two seasons together.
