BODEGAS VOLVER celebrates traditional Spanish wine culture by showcasing its variety, depth and unique terroir. We concentrate on cultivating Spanish indigenous varietals, such as Monastrell, Tempranillo, Merseguera, Macabeo and Moscatel that tell the story of this unique place.
Over the years, Bodegas Volver has selected estates with the best terroir and quality po- tential. “Finca los Juncares” the single vineyard of Volver, was planted in 1957, located at an altitude of 2156 feet. The high altitude arid plains of La Mancha have a continen- tal climate – cold, snowy winters, drenched with sunlight and drastic diurnal summer temperatures with nearly zero precipitation. The soils are very sandy and are intermixed with pure chalk and red clay, evening out the precious moisture for the vines. These harsh conditions result in rich red wines.
