Belondrade Quinta Apolonia 2019


The winery was founded by Didier Belondrade who came to Rueda and was inspired to apply Burgundian winemaking techniques to create exceptional white wines from the local Verdejo grape. What began in the mid-1990s as a tiny project using rented vines and a small corner of a friend’s winery quickly blossomed into Belondrade’s own winery on the La Seca plateau some 760 metres above sea level.

Here Belondrade has some 30 hectares of vines planted on pebbly soils over a sub-layer of clay and sand. The exact character of the soil varies greatly from plot to plot, allowing Belondrade to select the precise personality of each wine to reflect the vintage and the micro-terroirs of his vineyards.

Enjoy it with Aperitif, Cow´s or sheeps cheese, Grilled vegitables, Grilled whitefish, Light hors d´oeuvres, Mushrooms, Pica Pica or local traditional tapas, Poultry, Roasted red meats, Smoked foods.
