The savoir faire of Valencian winemakers


There’s no doubt that Valencian winemakers and wineries are stepping out and are promoting and producing great wines that pairs perfectly with our Mediterranean diet. White and red wines that I present today and recommend.

Taking care of the inside and the outside

Although I know it’s not the first time you read the name of these wines, I have never had the opportunity to share an entire post about these wines that in recent months are having great success among the female audience when we have presented them. Today I want to share it and expend a little more time and a few lines to these wines that go great with our daily lives, they are worth for a special event, dinner or celebration, such as a barbecue, a meal with family or friends. Success is guaranteed.

The wineries philosophy: respect, love and passion

La Baronia de Turis is a Valencian Cooperative that produces wines since the Iberian times but it was not until 1920 when 70 farmers were associated with the goal of making quality wines. Today has 713 members, 1000 ha. of vineyards and the technology to produce all references.

His philosophy is summed up in three words: respect, love and passion. Respect for the land, love for their work and passion for quality winemaking.

The result: Mediterranean wines ideal to take any time at a very good price.
