The Bardos

Just as the ancient bards sang of the great deeds of the heroes so they would not fade into oblivion, the wine bards are growers whose wisdom has been inherited over generations together with the experience of having worked in the vineyard all their lives.

True enough theirs would be a better life if they moved to another area, where they could produce more and work less, or change with the times and stop working the vineyard only by hand. They could, but they would no longer be the Bards.

The vine

Only the strongest vines are able to survive the Páramo, a region that suffers extremely dry summers and interminably long and severe winters. That capacity of resistance acquired during decades is the cause of the very low production of Tinta del Pais in the vineyards, and in turn, gives each cluster that special character capable of producing unique wines.

The collection

Páramo de Corcos

The Páramo de Corcos region is the most surprising and at the same time, unknown region of Ribera. Ten thousand hectares of flat landscape, where only the bravest know how to work the land in extreme conditions throughout the year. A place where the cold shrinks the bones, the wind cuts the flesh and the sun burns the skin.

The Páramo reflects the sweat, fear and strength of the people who cultivate a land where the most sought after grape of the entire denomination can be found.

The Winemaker

Raúl Acha

When we created Bardos, we had the option of settling in the prestigious Golden Mile, as big wineries do, or complicating our lives and settling in the coldest, highest and most difficult area of the entire denomination. We chose the second option for a reason, if we wanted to make a daring wine we would need to be surrounded by daring people.

And the result has made it worthwhile. A collection that reflects the perfect balance between power and finesse, between complexity and intensity. Four elegant, fine tannin, very fresh wines.
