About the Producer
Baldovar 923 is located in the mountains of Valencia, in the village of Baldovar (at 923 meters altitude), 100km from the sea. It was started in 2016 by four founders, given the tremendous potential of the region to produce high quality wines: purity of the soils, climatic characteristics, high altitude and old vines indigenous varieties. To make the dream a reality, they restored the wine cellars previously used by a winemaking cooperative that had closed more than a decade ago. They are one of the very few wineries in the region, and one of three sharing a similar philosophy, with most of the production done by five bulk coops.
Their 14 hectares of low-yielding bush vines are between 20-80 years old and grow at 900-1,200 meters altitude. The four wines they produce are made with as little intervention as possible, both in the vineyards (recently certified organic, and where biodynamic practices are introduced) and in the cellar, using indigenous yeasts with no added fining agents, nutrients, or chemical agents.
