Monica Peñas, an energetic and passionate young winemaker, leapt at the chance to use grapes from her husband's family vineyards. These are in the more remote and highland corners of the Ribera region, just west of Pesquera de Duero.

What she make is two Tinto Fino based wines that shine vibrant and expressive, eking out the subtleties of the grape and its terroir. Monica believes you will find there is no irony in the name! A new chapter is being written in the region.
