My Wine Recommendation Nº 11 - For under €10
11 April 2019 @ 11:55

Bodegas Latúe is a Spanish family-owned cellar dedicated to the elaboration, ageing and bottling of musts and wines, but specialising in vegan-organic wines.

Founded in 1954 by 131 families of wine growers from Villanueva de Alcardete (Toledo), they have lasted for several generations. With their work and dedication, they contribute to the economic and social sustainability of the municipality and to the maintenance of the population in the rural area, avoiding the desertification and the abandonment of their community. A fate which many rural villages have suffered.

Thanks to a highly qualified team, and their modern facilities equipped with the most advanced winemaking technologies, Bodegas Latúe work closely with our clients to produce wines of excellent quality which allows them to be leaders in an increasingly competitive market.

Located in the centre of Spain, at a maximum distance of 15 kilometres from the winery, their vineyards enjoy a genuine and characteristic landscape typical of La Mancha.

With an average altitude of 725 meters above the sea level, sheltered by the banks of the Gigüela River and influenced by an extreme continental Mediterranean climate with warm summers and cold winters, the natural enclave of 4,300 hectares of vineyards is one of the largest ecological wineries in Europe.

The unique conditions for the cultivation of the grape, provided by the scarcity of rain and a stony brown-copper soil on limestone, provide  Bodegas Latúe’s wines with exceptional quality and an incomparable personality.

This year's prize-winning white "Pingorote - Sauvignon Blanc" at just over €4 is the one I would like to recommend. A very fresh fruity white with a light citric hint. A wonderfully medium bodied flavour with a nose of flowers, peach, tropical fruit and lemon zest. Ideally coupled with fish, sushi, seafood, poultry or as an aperitif. Of course, drink well chilled. It is not the easiest wine to find, but if you happen to come across it, please give it a try. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Definitely want to try their wines. However, do any main supermarkets stock them?

"MY OBSESSION FOR OLIVE OIL, ONE OF SPAIN'S MAJOR ASSETS AND GREATLY MISUNDERSTOOD BY THE MAJORITY OF CONSUMERS" — Ok, so when are you going to gift us with your knowledge about olive oil?
Next week? Week after? Can't wait.

You will need to go back to the beginning of my blog to read an entire series of posts on Olive Oil.
I note a tone of sarcasm in your comments, there is no obligation to read my posts by the way. I would also appreciate if your comments did not bring politics into discussion. You seem to be obsessed with Franco as every post I write you relate it to him. Please refrain from doing so. Thank you

But that said you are probably right in that it may be time to change my blog description....as it has developed into more areas over the years...

Hi Manxmonkey

I have always bought it from local supermarkets in La Mancha, my wife is from that region and we visit regularly. I haven't seen it in Consum or Mercadona as far as I can remember...sorry. However, given that it won the prize this year for the best white in Castilla-La Mancha it may well be in Carrefour...I would need to check
