The cellar of Bodega Sierra Norte is located in Requena and the vines grow about 900 metres above sea level in the village of Camporrobles, close to Utiel. The Bodega was started in 1995 and the first wines bottled in 1999. In the past the region was better known for the production of bulk wine, but recently local growers have focused more on quality and bottling. Among these is Sierra Norte who are leading the drive for better wines using local varieties.
Bobal a local grape plays a major part in their red wines and all grapes grown are certified organic, the focus of the Bodega is always quality and not quantity.
Tasting Notes: The Heraclio red champions the local hero, the bobal grape, it has a soft-natured character made up of juicy blue fruits and makes this organic wine blend easy-to-drink next to the all-powerful cabernet sauvignon. Very satisfying.less
