With this belief, Derrick Neleman started his study to become a biodynamic farmer. After his training, he ended up on the vineyards in Spain. When he realized how culturally historically important wine is as a binder in a civilization, everything fell into place. Derrick wanted to make the most beautiful wines in optimal cooperation with nature to enable people to experience how beautiful & special life is.
The bodega was founded in 1999 & is located in the southwest of the province of Valencia, in the River Clariano District, which comes under the ‘Valencia’ Designation of Origin. Neleman organic wine is made without the use of pesticides & additives. A healthy & balanced soil yields a richer biodiversity that provides a richer breeding ground for tastier grapes. And taking good care of nature not only serves us with good wine today, but more importantly, with good wine for eternity!
Nelemans are careful with they unique grapes, vineyards & nature around them. Planting a tree for every 175 bottles that they produce & always choosing the most sustainable option in their business operations. They choose young artists, designers & architects to make the design of their labels & packaging. Serving nature & people the right attention.
Made with Macabeo 85% Chardonnay 15%, this Cava uses the best white grape selection in Requena. After soft pressing they keep just a fraction of the must to achieve a delecate unique balance. First fermentation & second fermentation (in bottle), at 16ºC to widen the range of flavours. Fruity & floral, typically characteristic of Valencian Cavas.
Fresh & zingy with aromas of white fruits & citrus notes with buttery elegant pastry background. On the palate it is round & easy.
