Purulio

(Marchal, Spain)

Torcuato Huertas has worked all his life in the countryside mainly growing olive and fruit trees. IT was in the early 80's, when he used to go to Barranco Oscuro to help his uncle Manuel Valenzuela (Bodega Barranco Oscuro) with the pruning and harvesting works, when it arose in him the concern of the vineyard. His great-grandfather used to make a young wine for self-consumption and Torcuato thought it could be a good idea to follow this family tradition and even improve it. The influence of Manuel has been enormous and has been reflected in his respect for nature, his interest to try new varieities and different ways of vinification, and in the search for authenticity in every bottle.
