Verdejo origins date back to the 11th century, when the basin of the river Duero was repopulated with people from Cantabria, the Basque Country and the Muslim Southern regions. Very probably the so-called Mozarabs (mozárabes, Iberian Christians who lived under Arab Islamic rules) brought the variety from North Africa.
The resulting wines have unique flavors, with rich fruity expression, a hint of scrub herbs, an excellent level of acidity and a special, elegant bitter touch.
After keeping a careful eye on the ripening process, the night harvest is carried out in the month of September to take advantage of the cooler temperatures which help to preserve the aromas. The grapes undergo cold maceration in order to accentuate the must's aromatic intensity, before controlled fermentation at low temperatures over a period of 18 days.

Nebla expresses the freshness and zest of daybreak after a night harvest. This superb and unique combination of the night-time chill, the mist ('niebla' in Spanish) and the morning sun, typical of the Rueda region, results in this single-varietal 100% Verdejo that is fully fruity and fresh on the palate.
An attractive straw-yellow colour with greenish iridescences. Its nose offers everything that could be expected from the Verdejo variety: fennel, freshly mown hay and tropical fruits (pineapple and mango). On the palate it is buttery with a fine fruity finish and refreshing acidity.
