Luna Beberide de Vinos The Spanish Wine Specialist in London & the UK

Luna Beberide

This family winery started in the region of Bierzo, about 250 miles north west of Spanish capital Madrid, in 1987, even before the D.O. (“Denominación de Origen” or Protected Wine Region) was created. At the beginning they had a few plots of old vineyards and also planted an experimental vineyard to see how international grape varieties adapted to the region. After years of study, during which Mariano García (who used to be the winemaker at world famous Vega Sicilia state in the Ribera del Duero region) consulted and helped them, they decided to make the biggest effort to rescue old vineyards of indigenous grapes of the Bierzo Region: red Mencía and white Godello. These had practically disappeared in the 1970′s, given their lower production levels compared to other international varieties. Nowadays, however, the base of all Luna Beberide’s red wines is the Mencía grape, which shows its maximum expression in the south-facing vineyards located in the slopes of Villafranca del Bierzo village, where Luna Beberide’s own 90 hectares of vineyards are located.  This large extension of owned vineyard is one of the key strengths of Luna Beberide, as it is unusual to find wineries in Bierzo with such a large vineyard extension under control.

Alejandro Luna, second generation of family winemakers, is now in charge of the work at the vineyard and the winery and he has a clear idea in his mind: treat the vines in the most respectful and natural manner, so that they can express their full personality and terroir. That is the reason why at Luna Beberide they do short and green pruning and try to keep yields at 25-30 hl. per hectare, lower levels than the standard in the region.
