Monastrell… rocks!

Vinergia Spanish Wines Campos de Risca Monastrell Syrah

Campos de Risca, from the kingdom of Monastrell

A wine mined, extracted from the least promising of soils. “Risca” is a local word for the uncompromisingly tough soil and an even tougher climate.  Growing grapes organically in south-east Spain is almost the only option.

A short introduction video about
Campos de Risca... coming soon!

Campos de Risca, the Place

The Atlantic weather fronts wash over the Iberian peninsula from the north-west and by the time they reach the south-east of the country they are rained out – there must be some reason the tourists gather on the mediterranean coasts around the bottom right-hand corner of Spain.

Monastrell: a survivor

Nothing else grows, no weeds, no flowers, no grasses. Just the toughest of vines plunging their roots down into the soil to extract drops of moisture to create these tough little grapes.

THE VINEYARD

The grapes for Campos de Risca come from several different vineyards in the south of Jumilla. With such a low rainfall and tough soils, these are low bush vines which barely grow to waist height.
