Bodegas Venta la VeGA: DO Almansa Wines
The 225 hectares of ecological vineyards located at the foothills of the legendary mountains of Almansa known as El Mugrón are the largest single planting of the Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) variety in Europe.
This privileged location has abundant water and excellent soil, with a natural micro-climate that guarantees suitable conditions for ecological production of the singular wines that became part of the MGWines Group as Bodegas Venta la Vega Territorio Ecologico in 2017. The addition of DOP Almansa to the Group’s unique collection of DOs (Regional Designation of Origin) is aligned with its commitment to outstanding wines, native varieties, sustainable projects and respect for the environment.
It is a unique ecological area in Europe
The estate where Bodegas Venta la Vega is located includes more than 850 hectares of ecological farm land in the mountainous limestone area of Almansa. Altitudes of 1200 metres encourage the creation of distinct, natural micro-climates that enable the land to be farmed using ecological techniques that do not involve any chemical treatments or additives on the 250 hectares of vineyards.
The secret of Venta la Vega, the Ternario System
We have created our own numbering system to identify each of our three wines, based on triangles, which are the foundations of our concept.
The ternario system is a positioning number system based on 3s, in which all the amounts are represented by only 3 numbers: 0, 1 and 2
The numbering sequence of the ternario system is: 1, 2, 10, 11, 12, 100, 101, 102, etc.
Therefore, each of our wines has been assigned an initial number in this system, resulting in Ternario 1, Ternario 2 and Ternario 10.
We have assigned each of these a code with the geometric shape of a triangle, creating this series.
The wines of Venta la Vega
Garnacha Tintorera is the main protagonist of Venta la Vega Territorio Ecológico, which finds its greatest expression in “Ternario”, a limited collection of three progressively more evolved organic wines that are all based on the essence of this native variety that is widely appreciated today. This is a personal project of the renowned oenologist from the Bierzo region, Raúl Pérez, one of the leading figures in the new and radical oenological project of MGWines.
Venta la Vega also has more wines of a more classical character under the “Adaras” range, wines with a distinct flavour that blends the Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell varieties, a combination that offers a magnificent interpretation of the Almansa region.
