Verdejo is indigenous to Rueda, north west of Madrid. With the help of modern, temperature controlled fermentation it’s rapidly becoming Spain’s premium white grape variety. Try it and you’ll see – it’s like a Sauvignon Blanc with ‘cojones’. Far more food friendly , with some of Sauvignons grapefruit and tropical fruits, balanced with green herbs and plenty of refreshing acidity. Perfect with asparagus, early summer vegetable risottos, tapas, fish etc.

pre-packed case price is 10% cheaper than buying 6 individual bottles.

about Menade wines

Bodegas Menade is a pioneering family owned and run concern. Ten years ago, with generations of winemaking experience behind them, the three Sanz family siblings branched off on their own and set up an organic winery – the first in Rueda. It’s been a great success but they haven’t rested on their laurels and prizes. The wines get better every year and we hope the Verdejo will be on the Riverford list for years to come. It’s really that good. Calling it the next Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc is doing it an injustice.
