Bodegas Mocén

Wineries Mocén, a Spanish winery located in the center of the town of Rueda, was acquired in 1988, when restoration work for the rehabilitation of old underground galleries dating from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries began, therefore, over five hundred years. This marked the beginning of a blueprint of the area, with the recovery, cleaning, calibration of the stones and red bricks, symbols of a Moorish heritage in a labyrinth of caves, at a depth of 25 meters and a total length of 4 kilometers. Where temperature and humidity are constant throughout the year, they are the ideal setting for wine to undergo his rest period. For this, small niches, iron bars or racks have been made, offering detailed flavor and a good environment for walking through them. Mocén also has ancient deposits of Spanish chestnut trees, which were used as storage containers large, and that today are genuine relics of the past.

Visitas

Viura visit: the visit starts in the Castilian-style patio decorated with old farming tools. We walk through the production and aging areas, where we will explain how the wine is produced, characteristics of the D.O. Rueda, grape varieties, etc. We will then visit the underground galleries where, in times past, the wine was made and where now our wines age in the bottle (before being commercialized). The visit ends with a wine tasting in the shop.

Tempranillo visit: the visit starts in the Castilian-style patio decorated with old farming tools. We walk through the production and aging areas, where we will explain how the wine is produced, characteristics of the D.O. Rueda, grape varieties, etc. We will then visit the underground galleries where, in times past, the wine was made and where now our wines age in the bottle (before being commercialized). What characterizes this visit is the tour of the library, where culture and wine connect. In this library we keep around 20,000 books on gastronomy, wine and local history, including some old manuscripts and first editions.  The visit ends with a tasting of two wines in the shop.

Verdejo visit: this is the most complete of our visits because, in addition to visiting the same areas as in the other visits, we will also see the ancient/old winery, the bullfighting room and what is quite a unique installation (in a winery) which is a museum/gallery where we can find paintings from different movements and artists. The visit ends with a tasting of two wines.
