PRODUCTION

The discovery of four bear footprints in a magnificent vineyard in the highest areas of the Bierzo inspired the name of this wine.
Four firm steps are necessary to reach excellence: the selection of the land, the care of the vine, a suitable climate and carefulness in the vinification.
Four places: Otero, Hornija, Corullón y Valtuille with four different stories that define the character of their people and vines.
And this is how Four Steps came about, 100% Mencía elaborated from grapes chosen from the over 80-year-old vines from the slated lands located in the high areas of the Bierzo region.
After its vinification, its brief maturation is carried out in barrels of oak originating from four woods: American, Allier, Limousine and Nevers…
