Dominio del Urogallo is a small estate set up on Spain’s northern coast by the pioneer Fran Asencio. He also makes wine in Bierzo and the Sherry Triangle. This winemaker has an intense personality, plus a willingness to produce the kind of wines he loves – refined, aromatic and pure. He has accomplished in Asturias how to respect the symbioses between the soil, the climate and the local grapes. He cultivates the vineyards on steep slopes following the precepts of biodynamic viticulture on soils made of slate, anthracite and quartz. He is passionate about this land and its potential in the wine world. Asturias is intensely defined by monastic tradition, unique grape varieties (red verdejo, carrasquín, albarin…) and prefiloxeric vineyards.
