José Antonio García began his wine-growing career in 2000, taking up the family tradition, and with a firm commitment to typicality, for the Mencía variety. Convinced of the importance of preserving small properties, the smallholding, since it is in them where the peculiarities that allow making differentiated wines are hidden, he returned to the lands of his grandparents to take over the 75 plots that his grandfather had cared in the past, six hectares of family vineyards with vines between 80 and 100 years old, plus another four owned by small winegrowers. José Antonio García is the grandson of Santos García, a renowned winegrower in Valtuille de Abajo, and despite being born in Barcelona and having lived a stage of his life in the great city dedicated to the world of hospitality and cuisine, he returns to the land of his grandparents, in love with Bierzo and Mencía. Practicing organic viticulture that respects the environment and working in an artisanal way and with a selection of the best French cooperages, José Antonio seeks to offer wines that convey the essence of Mencía grapes: expression, fruit, freshness, elegance. The grapes with which Unculín Blanco is made come from vineyards that are about 80 years old, planted on predominantly clayey soils located on the Hundiñias estate in the heart of Valtuille. The harvest is manual with grape selection in the vineyard. Already in the winery it is destemmed and pressed. Unculín Blanco ferments in stainless steel tanks with wild yeasts and once finished, it rests in the same tanks for a few months with its fine lees.
