Macerate for 12 – 24 hours, scraped and allowed to decant naturally for about 24 hours to remove thick lees.

Bodegas Barco del Corneta is the project of Beatriz Herranz who remembers from the childhood the vineyard of his grandfather, whom he did not know. A vineyard in Cantarranas that many years later would inherit his mother and take her back to La Seca.
The project is small, careful, very personal. The philosophy of Beatriz is based on delivering a version of the Verdejo far removed from the prevailing homogenization in the area. Its wines are made on the margins of the DO Rueda, although the vineyards of the Cantalarrana area are located in La Seca.
First was born Barco del Corneta, the Verdejo from the family vineyards in Cantalarrana. Barco del Corneta is the name of a pine forest located in that vineyard, the same of his childhood memories. In 2013 already with a consolidated project, it decides to elaborate a Verdejo of greater production, is its regional wine Cucú, that nourishes of vineyards located in La Seca and in Aldeanueva of the Codonal (Segovia), a young wine but with all the essence of its philosophy.
