Ribera del Duero, Spain

Bodegas La Milagrosa was founded by a small group of growers in 1962. The bodega owns many small vineyards that were planted in the early 1940’s. These vineyards surround the bodega on the short, rolling hills that give the illusion of continuing to the horizon. Each vineyard is surrounded by rocks, pine trees, thyme, and have varying orientations. The varying orientations produce grapes that vary in acidity and structure. The grapes from each of the vineyards are vinified separately, which gives tremendous flexibility when blending the different coupages to achieve the maximum balance in the final wine. Milcampos means ‘a thousand fields’ because looking from the bodega across the horizon along the rolling hills, each hill looks like a different vineyard, particularly in the early morning when the fog in the valley separates each hill.  The Ribera del Duero, or ‘Banks of the Duero River’, region is located in northern central Spain, between Rioja and Toro. The Benedictine monks introduced winemaking in Ribera del Duero in the middle ages, but the region received international acclaim in the past century with Vega Sicilia and Pesquera wines. The vineyards are located at exceptionally high altitudes in a continental climate with bitter cold winters and short summers. Milcampos Old Vine Tempranillo is one of the most awarded wines in our portfolio. Shelftalker  Winery Website
