La Osa

Following ten years of experience tending to the vineyards her brothers planted and working in her family’s winery, Bodegas Tampesta, the very dynamic Noelia de Paz is realizing her independent La Osa mission: Produce expressive, small production wines from her native DO Tierra de León. Noelia carefully elaborates some of Spain’s mostly harshly ignored varieties, Prieto Picudo (Tinto) and Albarín (Blanco), in the Municipal of Valdevimbre in the southwest of León, within the Province of Castilla y León.
