BODEGA FINCA EL CARPIO: By keeping the strength and long-lasting traditions of Castilla, Zumaya wine conveys the spirit of an old land packed with charm and wild beauty. This wine comes from carefully selected vines growing in the small plots situated on the slopes of the “Carpio” hill, which gives name to “Finca El Carpio” winery. This unique location at the Duero’s riverbank reveals the rooted tradition of Ribera del Duero DO in winemaking and turns the wine into a vivid explosion of sensations.
Coming from the noble land of Castilla, Zumaya has named for centuries the Spanish bird bringing freedom to those who lived in the era of masters & servants. As ‘Federico García Lorca’ said in its popular poem ‘Romance de la luna’, seeing Zumaya crossing the sky is an invitation for day-dreaming.
Not only the environment but the spirit of the master cellars from Bodega Finca El Carpio, is present in every single drop of the wine. The small village of Fuentespina where it’s located – near Aranda de Duero, can be proud of having one of the richest histories of the legendary province of Burgos. Being a great example of local cooperation, Fuentespina’s settlers joined forces to raise the ‘Hermita del Padre Eterno’ in 1719. Far away from the expectations of those humble villagers, the hermitage is today a reference of the Spanish Baroque and meeting point for reconnecting with the nature essentials.
This magic ‘wine’ land means a complete experience worth to be lived, and for those with other destination on the map, Zumaya Tempranillo offers them the chance to get conveyed to the land where elegance is bottled.
