VDV Gewürztraminer Colección 2016, The job well done, a safe bet of elegance.

White Wine (D.O.Somontano) 100% Gewürztraminer grape variety.


This white wine is probably one of the best national representations of the variety Gewürztraminer, originating in Central Europe (Germany and Austria). Especially aromatic and with citric flavor, it concentrates a delicate fan of aromas where the notes of exotic fruit stand out. Soft and velvety, it envelops with a highly marked ointment.

It comes from the property named “Pago del Enebro” with an altitude of 400 meters above sea level and north orientation. The average age of the vineyards is 27 years.
The harvest is done manually and are transported in small trailers to reduce the time from the bunches are cut to their vinification already in the cellar. Maceration for 7 hours. After it, the flower must is extracted to ferment it partially and separately at low temperature. After its rest and subsequent stabilization, the wine was bottled at the end of December 2016.
Intense yellow, bright, medium-layer, with greenish flashes. Very clean and marked aromas of floral range, complemented with exotic fruit souvenirs of oriental origin. In the mouth it is silky, unctuous and with a neat flavor, with a long persistence and, of course, a pleasant memory.
Deal with all kinds of appetizers, foie, smoked, spicy food, exotic dishes and fatty cheeses. Ideal also to enjoy it as a welcome drink. Serve between 7 and 8º C.


Viñas del Vero, a winery belonging to the González Byass Wine Family since 2008, owes its name to the homonymous river that runs through the area.
The winery was established in Somontano at the end of 1986 with the acquisition of 550 hectares of land in Barbastro and other nearby towns. The following year this land started to be replanted with vineyards of traditional varieties of the region (Tempranillo, Moristel, Garnacha and Macabeo), along with others from different sources (Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir).
For its production, Viñas de Vero is currently the first winery in Somontano. At present it works with 1,100 hectares of vineyard (about 680 in property) and produces approximately five million bottles per year. Wines from the winery can be found in more than 40 countries, since 50% of that production is exported.
