Founded in 1879, Vinos Guerra is the oldest winery in Bierzo. The founder Don Antonio Guerra was a pioneer in many ways. Mr. Guerra was one of the first producers to bottle methode champenoise wines in Spain. In addition to wine, Don Antonio produced a variety of spirits from Agua Ardiente, to Vermouth, to Anisettes.
Today, the Guerra winery farms 1/3 of all the vineyards in Bierzo. Out of the 3,000 ha (7,413 acres) of vineyard land in Bierzo, Guerra takes care of 1,000 ha (2,471 acres). However, they only make wine from their best 10% of grapes. The Guerra wines consistently show extraordinary quality due to this rigorous selection process. All the vineyards are organic and dry farmed.
In addition to being so selective, Guerra possesses among the oldest and most precious Mencia and Doña Blanca vines in Bierzo. The average age of these vines is 50 years, which helps to produce wines that are able to communicate an impressive sense of depth and flavor.
