Barco De Piedra

Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico (CVA) was founded in 2002 with the purpose of uniting the winemaking heritage of Alberto Orte and Patrick Mata's families. Both of their families have been producing wine, independently, throughout Spain since the late 1800s.

CVA currently produces wines in 18 different appellations within the Iberian Peninsula. The goal of CVA is to handcraft "elaborar" wines that express the identity of the place where they come from. Throughout the years, CVA has searched for great vineyard-sites which produce consistently superior wines compared to neighboring vineyards.

Barco de Piedra literally translated means Stone Boat. This stone boat sits high and overlooks the vineyards that produce the Tempranillo which goes into Barco de Piedra. This is an estate-owned small production wine; a singular location in the most prestigious district of Ribera del Duero. The vineyard is located 1.5 km north of the Duero River, 7 km east of the legendary Vega Sicilia and 4 km west of Pesquera.

Bodegas Barco de Piedra Tempranillo 2009
"Barco de Piedra is a small production estate-bottled cuvee that intends to show the bright fruit and power of the Ribera del Duero region. We purposely aged Barco for 5 months only to maximize the fruit and purity of the Tempranillo variety. Presently, if there is one "defect" in Ribera del Duero,
