Vineyard Notes: Cerro La Barca is the only 100% organic winery in the whole Extremadura region. The vineyard is located in the area of ​​Vegas Altas, just east of Mérida, on the banks of the Guadiana River. The quality of the terroir and the high level of biodiversity promoted in the vineyard makes human intervention almost unnecessary. The proximity to the river creates a special microclimate with humidity that decreases the irrigation needs and favors the elaboration of wines with excellent quality.

Winemaking Notes: Harvest is done manually, always at night. The grapes are Macabeo, Xarel-lo and a little direct press of Cabernet Sauvignon, which gives the wine a slight rosé tint. This sparkling wine is made via the ancestral method. It is disgorged by hand without added SO2
