Most have dismissed Rueda as a one stop shop for cheap whites and the occasional aspirational made Verdejo. We had, so it was with trepidation that our mate Ben (Carte Blanche Wines) motored down to La Seca just east of the village of Rueda to meet Vidal and his sister Alicia on a tip off from a friend that these were some of the best white wines in Spain. Not just Rueda, but Spain.
Ben visited every parcel of vines, most over 100 years old, all bush trained (the rest of Rueda is now given over to trellising for machine harvesting), each parcel a different make up of soil exposure and variety (Viura and Verdejo with a plot of Tinto Fina). They even have a team of falcons to mitigate unwanted intruders set on picking off riper fruit!
