About This Wine
Carrasvinas has a rich history in Spanish winemaking.
The winery, located in the Rueda region of Spain, was built more than 60 years ago with underground cellars. Today, it’s housed in an above-ground brick building packed with modern equipment to help ensure that the winery will be around for another 60 years.
Rueda has been known for wine since the 11th century, and its wares would have been enjoyed by Ferdinand and Isabel as they unified Spain in 1492. Their patronage made Rueda a key part of Spanish culture, a place where virtually every home had a wine cellar, and wine was as much a part of life as bread.
Today, the special wines of Rueda and Carrasvinas are enjoyed not just by locals, but by people like us who live far away. The 2015 Carrasvinas Verdejo is a crisp, bright, refreshing wine, and a delicious taste of Rueda’s heritage.
