At Bodegas y Viñedos Ponce, nestled in the heart of Manchuela, a dedication to the craft of winemaking and an embrace of biodynamic principles give rise to extraordinary Bobal wines.
The Ponce family, deeply rooted in the semi-arid landscapes of Castilla-La Mancha, meticulously tends to venerable vines, some with a storied age of eighty years, and notably, ungrafted strains that carry the legacy of a pre-phylloxera era.
As the 15th-anniversary label from 2020 adorns their bottles, it’s a toast to the confluence of tradition and terroir.
Their wines, born from the hands of artisans and the wisdom of nature’s cycles, reflect the soul of Manchuela—its sandy-calcareous and volcanic soils offering refuge from phylloxera and nurturing grapes that express the profound identity of their origin. It’s a story of resilience and purity, where every sip is a journey through time and terrain.
That’s why the 2020 Bodegas y Viñedos Ponce Bobal from the Manchuela region of Spain is today’s WineSiders wine of the Day.
