Bodegas Menade


The Sanz family has been dedicated to cultivating their vineyards and crafting their own wines in Rueda since the beginning of the 19th century. Representing the sixth generation of growers and winemakers, the siblings Marco (Viticulturist), Richard (Winemaker), and Alejandra (Export and Marketing) have been enjoying their project – menade – since 2005.

Pioneers in the organic certification of their vineyards and winery, their continued efforts to perfect the natural way of winemaking have resulted in magnifying the authenticity of Verdejo and the more natural side of this grape variety.
