Bodegas Meler | D.O. Somontano
The Meler family has been involved in agriculture for centuries, different generations have grown up between the grain farms, almonds and vineyards. The idea of establishing a winery, on the basis of own vineyards, stems from the dream of regaining the family history of vine growing and wine making. The vineyard of the Meler family is located in D.O. Somontano, at the foot of the Pyrenees, a small denomination of origin which surprises every time again in a positive way. There are few places in the world where such excellent conditions come together as they do here. The mountains in the Pyrenees, with a climate of freezing winters and extremely high temperatures in summer, are perfect for the production and elaboration of special mountain wines. The wines are mineral rich, have intense flavours with a delicious freshness.
The idea is to continue the artisanal family tradition, but also to incorporate the modern techniques of wine making and land care. The result is a wide range of exceptional wines, made purely organic in a traditional way without adding sulphites, sugars and so on. It is a project of 3: three women, three sisters, three young ladies… with one single goal: “Transform the grapes in unique and exclusive wines with character”. The three sisters can be found on the labels of the young Meler line as well (see below). Ana Meler is the young and talented winemaker of the three, she makes distinctive wines which in some cases deviate from the traditional types. In the video below she will personally tell you some interesting facts about the project.
