Wine Makers

Blanco Nieva. by Javier Herrero Vedel

Viñedos de Nieva is a small family winery run by three brothers (José María, Juan Miguel and Javier) and situated next to the picturesque town of Nieva, in the heart of Segovia. When they established their Bodega in 1989, they helped to restore what was once a thriving business in the area. The winemaking in the area had been controlled for hundreds of years by the Jeronimo monks.

 

When Jose Maria Vedel and his family took over, the vines were in disarray. It took a lot of work to restore the vineyards, and they now produce excellent wine, some from vines which are about 150 years old. The Vedel family only use the best grapes from the vineyard to make their own wine. In fact, only 35% of their production is vinified to make their own label wines, the rest is sold to local wineries.

 

Run now by José Maria's three sons, the dedication to achieving an excellent result with every harvest is made evident in the round-the-clock work of these men. They harvest at night to preserve the aromas and freshness of the wine, and one family member is always on hand to oversee transportation to the winery and the initial vinification process.

Press Reviews

"Mild honey and tropical fruit on the nose, lovely juicy tingle on the palate and reasonable length." Raymond Blake, Food and Wine Magazine

“The Verdejo grape produces some of Spain’s zestiest white wines in the cool highlands of Rueda where, as in this example, it can perform uncannily like a kind of eccentric Sauvignon Blanc. Mind you, there’s also some grapefruit zest and a touch of very ripe pear. Lovely with goat’s cheese.” Tom Doorley, Irish Daily Mail

"Textbook Rueda with its pithy grapefruit and light pears. It is not too aromatic, a good thing in my book, and the fruit is crisp and stylish. This would make for very classy summer drinking." John Wilson, Irish Times
