About The Producer:

Bodegas Volver is a Spanish wine producer making wines in Alicante, Jumilla, and Castilla La Mancha. The brand was founded in 2004 by Jorge Ordoñez and Rafael Canizares to highlight lesser-known Spanish wine-producing regions in export markets. The bodegas has a diverse portfolio of brands, but production is largely focused on the Monastrell and Tempranillo grape varieties.

Many of Volver's wines are made from the 110-hectare (272-acre) vineyard in La Mancha. Here, the soils are sandy and iron- and limestone-rich, and are planted to low yielding, dry-farmed Tempranillo vines. The best section of the land, the Finca Los Juncares vineyard, is 29ha (72 acres) and includes Tempranillo vines planted in 1957. The wine made from this vineyard is aged 18 months in French oak barrels, then bottled unfiltered. It is the only wine in the portfolio to be labeled as Bodegas Volver.

Paso a Paso and Venta Morales are also made in the La Mancha vineyards. These two labels both make a range of Tempranillo wines, but a couple of white wines are also made under the Paso a Paso label from Verdejo and Macabeo.

In Alicante, Bodegas Volver makes the Tarima Hill label, which is focused on Monastrell, a variety that does very well in the extreme climate here. Tarima Hill makes several Monastrell wines, and also has a range of white wines made from Merseguera, Macabeo and Moscatel. Bodegas Volver produces another Alicante wine, Triga, which is a blend of 85 percent Monastrell and 15 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from the bodega's oldest vines, some planted in 1925.

Bodegas Volver's Jumilla vineyards are planted to Monastrell with vines ranging in age from 25-35 years. The region experiences extreme temperature fluctuations with little rain.
