DO Rueda, Spain

The Heart of Rueda

The abandoned medieval cellars where wine used to age in the times of Catholic Kings and the discovery of America is at the heart of Bodegas Mocén. Purchased and restored along with 140 hectares of prime vineyard land in the D.O. Rueda by visionary restaurateur Jose Luis in 1988. After 25 years Mr. Luis is ready to introduce the American market to the high quality wines of Bodegas Mocén.


  • D.O. Rueda 298 ha. between 740 – 760 meters  - high altitude provides good acidity

  • average vine age 30 years - mature vines provide depth and structure

  • typical vine spacing 1.5 meters x 3 meters  - close planting provides intensity of flavor

  • silt and sand with loose pebbles - plants drive deep roots providing minerality


Vineyard plantings are focused on tradition but balanced with innovation.

47% Verdejo - 13% Sauvignon Blanc - 7% Viura - 24%Tempranillo - 8% Cabernet - 1% Merlot


Extreme caution is employed at the winery to bring the harvest to the cellar door in the optimum condition. Night harvesting and no crushed fruit is used in the MOCÉN line of production.
