Alegra is the result of the commitment and enthusiasm of sisters Ruth and Ana De Andres. Their inquisitive nature has led them across Spain in search of vineyards, projects, and collaborations as unique as they are. In Rueda’s rocky highlands, it was the Val de Vid Vineyard that caught their attention; the region’s appeal for growing Verdejo stems from its ability to mature fruit slowly as the hot days are tempered by cold nights. The winery is located close to the vineyard, allowing for freshly harvested grapes to be transported and processed quickly without damage or oxidation, helping to maintain the true character of the Verdejo.
A very classic Verdejo, the bright straw color of the wine is tinged with green. The wine is light bodied, very crisp and slightly herbaceous with aromas of pear and orange zest. It is at once fresh and intensely fruity.
Pair it With:
Perfect for a summer evening, or an aperitif, this wine also lends itself beautifully to food. Its higher acidity and subtle bitterness make it work great as a palate cleanser. Try it with dinners of shellfish, summer pasta salads and risotto.
