Greetings, lovers of wine and exquisite gastronomy! In this exciting publication, we will explore the fascinating art of the perfect pairing between our distinguished red wines and the authentic flavours of Castilian-Leonese cuisine.
Let’s start by introducing our winery, located in the heart of the beautiful Ribera del Duero, a wine region with a rich history of producing premium red wines. Our wines are made with great passion and dedication from the noble Tempranillo grape variety, which gives them a unique character and a faithful expression of the terroir of the area.
We delve into the culinary world of the Castilian-Leonese region, famous for its tradition and authenticity. Here, local ingredients and recipes handed down from generation to generation delight us with a variety of authentic and delicious dishes. From roast suckling pig to roast suckling lamb, from tasty garlic soup to delicious churro lamb, every mouthful is an explosion of regional flavours.
Now, the question is: how to combine our red wines with the culinary delights of Castilla y León? Pairing is an art, and here are some recommendations that will surely accentuate your gastronomic experience:
Roast suckling pig with young Tempranillo: The juiciness and smooth texture of the suckling pig are beautifully balanced with a young wine, highlighting its fruity notes and soft tannins.
Baked suckling lamb with Crianza de Ribera del Duero: The intense flavour of suckling lamb is perfectly complemented by a Crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero, which adds elegance and complexity to every mouthful.
Garlic soup with oak wine: The warmth and aromas of garlic soup find an ideal companion in an oak wine, such as Viyuela Barrica, with hints of ripe fruit and subtle oak ageing.
Churro with Reserva de Ribera del Duero: The intense flavours of the lamb are enhanced by a Reserva red wine, which adds spicy notes and a well-integrated structure.
Remember that pairing is subjective and that everyone has their own preferences. We encourage you to experiment and discover your favourite combinations. Have you ever tried a typical regional dessert with one of our wines? The surprises in the world of food and wine pairing are endless!
