The wines of Bodegas Belote are produced in caves over five centuries old.
Founded in 2010, Bodegas Belote is situated in the village of Mayorga de Campos, at 900 metres of altitude, halfway between the northern Spanish provinces of León, Zamora and Valladolid, an area within the boundaries of DO Tierra de León. The winery is focused on the production of local varieties, like the red grape Prieto Picudo and the white grape Albarín. They are grown with traditional methods and minimal intervention techniques.
Interestingly, the wines of Bodegas Belote are vinified and aged in caves that were dug over five centuries ago with the aim of making and storing wine. Because of their constant levels of temperature and humidity throughout the year, the caves still provide excellent conditions for wine production. Besides that fact, putting the old caves back into work has helped to recover an important piece of the cultural heritage of the region, which holds great potential as a wine tourism destination.
Harvested at their optimal ripening pont, all of the grapes are vinified in the caves. The red wines are fermented in concrete tanks, and the whites and rosés are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wines of Bodegas Belote are aged in French oak barrels.
The personality of this “vinos de pueblo” crafted in caves from little-known native Spanish varieties is truly distinctive. Give them a try!
