by Ismael Gozalo
Here we are in Nieva, a small town in the province of Segovia, in the Rueda region. Here Ismael Gozalo farmer to the fifth generation of winemakers, takes care of the old vineyards of Verdejo and produces since the beginning of his adventure wines considered among the best whites in Spain!
Micro Bio is a family project that responds to a philosophy of life that benefits from wine and its sharing, as opposed to a production and marketing policy. The idea, from the beginning, was to produce wines with personality, without losing the varietal character and without masking the fruit. The ancient vineyards are located on sandy soils and the cellar is located in the basement of an ancient monastery (beautiful!!!), where this tiny reality produces only 10,000 bottles in many versions, some obtained following ancient forms of winemaking and aging (Tentados Orange and Kilometro 0) and others following the innovative and creative spirit of Ismael (Microbio 2018).
