Bodega Hermanos del Villar

Hermanos del Villar is one of the leading wineries in the area, well knowned and recognized as one of the most reliable producer with wines that not only show the fresh and fruity character of Rueda, but also their complexity, ability to age and quality

Tasting Notes

Deep cherry red with purple hints. This is a real cracker - showing the ripe and softened fruit of the region, supported by warmly sweet vanilla notes from the oak barrel ageing. This is a superb red, perfect with roast lamb, beef and full blown cheeses - or a spicy veg Tagine. This really changed our views of the region - quality at a great price!

Food Matches

Matured meats (Beef, pork, Lamb), stews, ripe cheese
