What should you do when you establish a winery with a group of friends and your wines are acclaimed by critics right from the start? Rest on your laurels? No, carry on working. That’s what the managers of Bodegas y Viñedos Neo (1999) did. The firm, one of the most dynamic and surprising wineries of what is known as the ‘new’ Ribera del Duero, was created by three wine- and music-loving friends – the winery building incorporates a recording studio – together with oenologist Isaac Fernández Montaña, one of the most highly reputed technical advisors.

Don’t miss their red Neo Colección Privada 2016, made wholly from Tempranillo grapes from old vines grown in La Horra, one of the most privileged areas of Ribera del Duero.

Bodegas y Viñedos Neo made its appearance at the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero in 2000 as one of the hippest new wine initiatives in the area. Since 2007 it has owned new facilities in Castrillo de la Vega (Burgos), which are equipped with the latest winemaking technology. The premises include a studio for recording music – the other great passion of the firm’s owners.

Bodegas y Viñedos Neo works with some of the best grape growers of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, who cultivate old vines. The firm recently added a new vineyard to its production – on the highest estate in Aranda de Duero with vines over 70 years old. Neo Tinto Reserva 2011 is ideal with dishes like Ibérico pork tenderloin in a peppery sauce or lambs’ trotters stuffed with wild mushrooms.

Tasting Notes

Profile sheet Neo Colección Privada 2016

Attractive ripe cherry-red colour.

Complex, elegant nose with clear aromas of blackberry, plum and cherry together with spicy notes – oregano – Mediterranean herbs (fennel, thyme) and toasty hints.

Silky, velvety palate with pleasant notes of vanilla from its magnificent ageing in oak barrels. Good acidity in the finish, in which hints of black fruit carry through along with touches of spice and toast. Long and lingering.
