The delightful Cucú is a vibrant and organic expression of Verdejo. Sourced from high-elevation vineyards in Segovia, northwest of Madrid, this crisp white wine is brimming with life.

Beatriz and Félix are childhood friends who put a shovel in the ground along with a few trusted others in the town of La Seca in D.O. Rueda. Béatriz’ grandfather has a rich history in La Seca dating back to the Spanish civil war. Along with Béatriz mum, Maria Antonia - who is the soul of Barco del Corneta in many ways - Béa and Félix are fighting  for the authentic expression of the Verdejo grape in Spain and abroad.  

Historically, Rueda is a place where industrial, commercial wines were made. Old-vine, goblet trained vines. Many pre-phylloxera.  Barco del Corneta is changing this narrative with their small-batch, organically farmed, low-intervention wines.
A young project with small beginning, she’s bought plots of old vines in nearby villages to make three single-vineyard cuvées, Viura (another word for Macabello), Verdejo and Palomino (also known as Listan).
