About the Producer
From a region well known for cider and dairy, but also home to some fascinating wines and grape varieties
Dominio del Urogallo is a small estate set up on Spain’s northern coast by the pioneer Fran Asencio. He also makes wine in Bierzo and the Sherry Triangle. This winemaker has an intense personality, plus a willingness to produce the kind of wines he loves – refined, aromatic and pure. He has accomplished in Asturias how to respect the symbioses between the soil, the climate and the local grapes. He cultivates the vineyards on steep slopes following the precepts of biodynamic viticulture on soils made of slate, anthracite and quartz. He is passionate about this land and its potential in the wine world. Asturias is intensely defined by monastic tradition, unique grape varieties (red verdejo, carrasquín, albarin…) and prefiloxeric vineyards.
Wine & Food Matching Ideas
Try it with
Mussels, white wine & parsley
Very simple and easy recipe that pairs beautifully with this refreshing and delicate wine.
I love the balance between the food and wine as neither overpowers the other and the saline/seaside aspect get magnified with this wine and food match.
