The year begins and we all set ourselves different goals. At Barcolobo, we are clear about what we want to do these 365 days, or rather what we are going to continue doing. Our aim for 2023 will be to focus on Spanish wines. These have been difficult years, socially and economically, but also climatically: with low rainfall and extreme heat, which has complicated more than one harvest.

This year we have to support local produce more than ever before, to go for zero kilometre. A product that benefits the entire work chain, from the winegrower – in this case – to the seller. But also to the final consumer. Because even if we are not going to make an economic profit, we should at least feel that we are investing in a quality product, produced entirely in our country.

Barcolobo wines are a clear example of this quality. For the enclave where it is harvested, for the care and attention taken in its harvest and for the commitment of an entire family. The “Riberas de Castronuño – Vega del Duero” Nature Reserve is home to Finca La Rinconada, the environment where this winery is located. A vineyard of 20 hectares where the varieties tempranillo, syrah and cabernet sauvignon are cultivated, following sustainable criteria in viticulture and ecological techniques; without aggressive treatments in the vineyard. They also have an old Verdejo vineyard for the production of their white wine.

It’s time to start the year with the best company, and that is none other than your favourite Barcolobo wine. Because if, as well as opting for local products, one of your aims is to look after yourself, remember that drinking a glass of wine a day is good for your cardiovascular health. However, you should always take your doctor’s opinion into consideration.
