The wine

The Finca Luna Beberide is a vino de paraje, a wine from a particular place, which picks up the soil’s diversity, with a captivating countryside aura in which wild red berries, bushes and earth converge with spices and smoke. It’s also a fresh and lively wine from start to finish, having enough body to satisfy every last millimetre of palate. A wine with a notable powerfulness, denoting purity and nobility. In short, a wine of conspicuous complexity at such a moderate price.

This wine was formerly known as Finca La Cuesta until the 2017 vintage. Now it’s a ‘vino de paraje’, a wine from a particular place, namely Valdetruchas, in Villafranca del Bierzo.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2019 Finca Luna Beberide is now a Vino de Paraje from Valdetruchas in Villafranca del Bierzo, a place with a diversity of soils and one that showcases the style of Luna Beberide with more complexity than just a varietal wine. The vines are about 50 years old and located at 600 meters in altitude. The grapes are kept in a cold chamber for 12 hours and then put in stainless steel tanks to wait for the fermentation to start spontaneously, with a post-=fermentative maceration of around 10 days. Malolactic was in stainless steel and the élevage in used French oak barriques for eight months. The 2019 is slightly riper than the 2020 I tasted next to it but still medium-bodied with 13.5% alcohol, fine tannins and nice balance. It's tasty with a vibrant finish.

Vineyards

The three reds made by Luna Beberide come from vineyards in a particular location, the paraje de Valdetruchas, in Villafranca del Bierzo. The youngest vines, situated in the valley, are grown for making the young Mencía; those at medium altitude, around 500-600 metres, aged more than 60 years old, are used to produce Finca Luna Beberide (previously called Finca La Cuesta for this reason); and those planted at the top of the slope, at about 700-800 metres, are destined for Art, the most concentrated and mineral wine.

Bodegas y Viñedos Luna Beberide

Bodegas y Viñedos Luna Beberide started up in 1986, in Bierzo, under the guidance of Alejandro Luna, with the purpose of making and offering fine wines with all due respect for the land and the vines. As Alejandro maintains: "the prime material and the soil must be the mainstays of what later will be a great wine”; and thanks specifically to those slate and clay-calcareous soils, they obtain fruit-laden, mineral wines. The winery possesses a large16th Century house located...
