This bodega, La Zorra (meaning the Vixen), is one of the leading wineries in the DO Sierra de Salamanca (indeed the founding father of the DO), a Denominación de Origen that celebrates its 10-years anniversary in 2020. It’s a rather new DO and it’s banking on the variety Rufete, to help make its name.
