In the 1980s fifth generation winemaker Francois Lurton of Bordeaux visited the white wine producing region of
Rueda, Spain. In the year 2000 fellow Bordelaises Dany and Michel Rolland joined him. Located two thousand feet
above sea level, Rueda has a dry climate with hot days and cool nights. The winery has forty-five acres planted one
third Sauvignon Blanc and two thirds to the native grape varietal Verdejo. The vineyards are drip irrigated. Campo
Alegre is 100% Verdejo. The wine sees six months in new French oak. This is a rich lush style with more depth and
concentration than some other Ruedas we carry. However, it stays true to its character. It is quite smooth with a long
finish and good acidity. The oak is very subtle framing the fruit not obliterating it. Try this refreshing wine with any
pork or poultry dish.
