Online Wine Merchant Turton Wines becomes the first to import renowned Spanish Organic Wines from Uncastellum vineyard.

Online wine merchant Turton Wines has become the first wine merchant to import the renowned range of wines from Bodegas Unca (January 19, 2011)
DMN Newswire--2011-1-19--Brett Dawson, Director of Turton Wines, said, ?Were so pleased to be able to supply the excellent range of wines from this unique vineyard .The fact that they are organic is just makes them even more special


The vineyard is located in the municipality of Uncastillo, bordering on Catiliscar and Sos del Rey Católico. The plantation was done on the south-eastern slopes, in order to make the most of the solar energy and compensate for the high altitude of the fields. This ensures a correct ripening of the fruit, as well as a notable diurnal temperature variation. In order to prevent erosion, the slopes have a permanent indigenous plant cover. This indigenous vegetation cover is periodically mowed and left on the slopes surface to in order to maintain fertility. This land is very rich in chalky stones and was originally covered by a mediterranean forest. An average rainfall of 550/600 mm makes irrigation unnecessary, but ensures the rootstock can pierce properly to the deepest layers and extract the soils best characteristics, which make their wines unique.
