The philosophy of the winery is to return to the traditional crops. Rafael Cañizares, winemaker of Bodegas Volver, fulfills a single maxim: Achieve the highest quality from growing the grape to the bottling of wines. A process based on perseverance and hard work!
The Monastrell grape variety is perhaps best known as Mourvèdre due to it being a component of many a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It has been farmed in Spanish vineyards for over 500 years, particularly close to the east coast. This rich, fruit-driven example shows the grapes typical savoury, red fruit flavours.
