Longtime friends Sander Horsthuis and Huub van den Muijsenbergh had a dream. It was one that they constructed slowly over annual golf trips to Spain, during which they brainstormed about how to bring their shared passion for wine to life by developing a wine concept that would take the market by storm. All this came together in October 2017.
The pair’s backgrounds in marketing and wine – Sander as marketing guru and Huub as vinologist – provided them with both the impetus, entrepreneurship and the know-how to get this project underway.
Together with the best winemakers in Spain they developed an iconic wine completely to their own needs and taste specifications. They called it The V-Rosé.
V-Rosé is made at Bodegas Nodus producing organic wines under the Denominación De Origen Valencia.
You will find the vineyards in a completely natural environment at 900 meters altitude. Spectacular for its beauty and exceptional for the cultivation of grapes and olives. There is a unique microclimate with Mediterranean influences. The mountainous terrain ensures that the sun’s rays are perpendicular to the vines. In addition, the mountains offer protection against weather conditions such as frost or hail, which means ripening takes place under perfect conditions.
This explains why every year we speak of an outstanding harvest.
THE MAKING OF
The viticulture can be considered organic, as the treatment of the vines is 100% natural. The viticulture is based on the latest vinification techniques and technologies. The various soil structures are an important basis for producing this delicious wine.
The best grapes from the vineyards are selected at their optimum ripeness. The harvest is received overnight at the winery and immediately followed by the stemming, crushing en pressing.
Apart from the best grapes, the most modern techniques, it is our winemaker Gonzalo Medina who makes best possible rosé in the world, every year!
