The Menade winery is located in the region of Castilla y Leon in central Spain and is operated by the Sanz family. There are 200 hectares of Verdejo vineyards, planted at 800 meters above sea level on chalky clay and limestone soils. The vines themselves range in age from 30 to 100 years. The vineyards and winemaking are certified organic. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks, with fine lees aging also in stainless steel.

The Sanz family has pioneered new ways to make Verdejo wines, dramatically minimizing the amount of SO2 (sulfur dioxide) used, with the goal of eliminating it altogether. Nosso indicates no SO2, and started as an experiment, with a wildly successful result. During vinfication the wine is protected by a layer of carbon dioxide (CO2). Malolactic conversion is not blocked and the wine rests on its lees for about 6 months.

A complex note of apple compote, raisins, with a savory herb and saline note. Pair this with pork dishes, seafood, game birds, cassoulets.
