ASENJO & MANSO
Ribera del Duero
Asenjo & Manso was founded in 2004 in the village of La Horra of Ribera del Duero. Although the bodega is young, the wines are amazingly deep and complex due to the 50-100 year old family vineyards.
Asenjo & Manso follow completely organic production, with certificaion in some of their vineyards already. Jesus Asenjo (the grandson of Tiofilo Asenjo, who first planted the estate’s vines) has been in the fields his entire life and tends to the vines himself year-round, and even his elderly father still walks the fields that Tiofilo once planted each day.
Precise and careful practices are carried out in their pristine facility by Natalia Calleja, where she believes in only stainless steel fermentation before oak aging, a light hand during the maturation, and creating wines that show the loving effort of the family estate.
