Maria Victoria Montero started Bodegas y Vinedos Verum in 2005, along with her children. Their vineyards spread across approximately 250 hectares, with over 14 different Spanish and French varietals planted throughout. Their focus is to makes wines from the best vineyards and terroir on their properties. They believe "wine is actually made in the vineyard". Since 2013, Verum's winery and vineyards have been certified organic. The most recognized Spanish red grape is Tempranillo. While this grape is grown all over Spain and Portugal, we are starting to see more and more 'new world' offerings. Australia, California and Washington are all having some success with their expressions. Typically known for big robust, cellar worthy red wines in some Spanish regions, Tempranillo can also show a softer side which is both lively and fun to drink. Intended to be enjoyed fresh and young, chill to 16C.


How it looks

Bright raspberry hue with purple undertones.

How it smells

Fruit forward with notes of strawberry and red cherries. Aromas of baking spice and a little bit of licorice round out this youthful nose. With a few swirls and some patience, we can coax out strawberry-rhubarb pie filling, a bit of an herbal and sweet fruit note.

How it tastes

Since this wine is fermented in stainless steel, the brightness and freshness of this wine really shows! On the lighter side of a medium body, the wine is soft and lean. Cranberries, cherries and cracked pink peppercorns are at the forefront of this wine, and they travel effortlessly through to the finish. Nice balance of tannin and acidity round out the palate.

Recommended food pairing

Fun with a Mexican feast of burritos or tacos, tomato-based dishes or roasted vegetables.
