The best grape you may never had heard of, Mencia is native to north west Spain. It is sometimes compared to Pinot Noir and like Pinot it sometimes gets the oak and ageing treatment but we like it like this, fresh, young and full of fruit. Bold enough to go with food but juicy enough to drink on its own too, maybe a little chilled, it’s great with lamb or duck.

Castro Ventosa has been run by the Perez family since 1752 and the cellar is now run by Raul Perez’s nephew Cesar Marquez, a rising star in Spain.
