When, in 2004, we began to explore in search of the wine regions with the most potential in Spain, we discovered the Corcos wasteland, a difficult but privileged area for viticulture, at more than 900 meters of altitude in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. There, we take on the challenge of creating honest wines with the land from which they come, looking for the essence of high-rise vineyards full of freshness and elegance.
In Bodegas Bardos we produce wines by hand, trying to make them the re ejo of the landscape and the Castilian climate, a place where only the bravest dare to work the Earth in the most extreme conditions, where the cold shrinks the bones, the wind cuts the flesh and the sun burns the skin. A place only suitable for authentic wine “bards”, our winemakers.
