Bodegas y Vinedos Jose Pariente
In 2000, two friends, Marivi Pariente and Viki Benavides, set up a domain in Rueda under the name Dos Victorias. In the beginning they vinify in another bodega because there are not enough resources yet. Plans are slowly maturing to start using your own bodega. It will be built in San Roman de Hornija, a village not located in the Rueda area but in Toro. From then on, red wine is also made in the Toro appellation. Legally, however, it is impossible to also vinify their white Rueda in this new bodega and have to split both of their friends in 2007: Marivi Pariente builds her bodega in Rueda under the name José Pariente and Viki Benavides retains the bodega in San Roman de Hornija under the name Elías Mora. So both women have named their domain after two men ... in tribute to the gentlemen who have maintained the vieilles vignes they now work with for years. José Pariente is the father of Marivi Pariente and so he took care of old Verdejo sticks all his life to pass on to the next generations. The bodega that has since been built in La Seca is today headed by Marivi and her daughter Martina. The José Pariente Verdejo has already won countless awards in Spain and is constantly being promoted as the example to follow in Rueda.
Jose Pariente has a total of 65 ha of vineyard, of which 60 ha Verdejo and 5 ha Sauvignon blanc. Verdejo is thus clearly the most important grape in the vineyards of Jose Pariente. Since 2015, a red wine has also launched the Prieto Pariente. The Prieto Pariente is guaranteed to be just as much a hit as the famous Verdejo and Sauvignon blanc.
