Honoro Vera is the new project of the Juan Gil family, which are world famous with its El Nido and Clio wines, but also has very small beautiful domains where the best of the region is brought out on a very small scale. All these wines are all gems. The name Honoro Vera is a tribute to the Gil family where Honoro is the name of Miquel Gil's grandfather and Vera of his grandmother

In 2005, Bodega Ateca, 55 hectares in size, was established in the village of the same name. The Honoro Vera Monastrell is made from Monastrell and Mourvedre from a very old gnarled vineyard. The vines are planted on calcareous soils without irrigation with very low yields and without the use of chemicals or synthetic pesticides.

The traditional fermentation is followed by a short maturing in French oak barriques (3-5 months). The wine has great aromatic complexity and length with matured blackberries, smoke and flowers. This mouth-filling Monastrell, with aromas of blueberries, herbs and a medium living acidity, is a full-bodied wine with a great price/quality ratio. At Juan Gil wines, all Sustainable or organic takes place

In Perswijn the wine has been given the status: Selected and that is not surprising given the unprecedented good price/quality ratio.
