Caserío de Dueñas a singular estate in the
heart of the Rueda D.O., where a profound harmony and a great
respect for the land have survived many upheavals over the
Caserío de Dueñas is not only a manor house but also a chapel
and with winemaker Almudena Alberca MW in charge there is a
devotion to Verdejo that is almost profound. The wines she creates
are a living testimony to a way of making wine and working with
this unique land, bringing together what is given and what is
created to celebrate Verdejo.
Its history dates back to the start of the 17th Century when
these fields were home to a small farming village. In 1800, after
Godoy's land disentailment act, the hamlet was transformed into a
large estate in which vineyards were planted gradually. Over the
decades, more and more land was turned over to vines as they proved
ideally suited to the area.
