This organic estate lies in an iconic Spanish landscape: it was the home of Cervantes’ fictional knight Don Quixote. Moreover, there have been many centuries of the most bitter battles across this land between the invading Moors and indigenous Christians. The plight of a Moorish princess of the time inspired the name ‘Mureda’. She was orphaned in one of the many battles across the region, remained hidden and protected here by a knight. So the house became known as ‘The House of the Moor’ or ‘La casa de Mureda’. This was in tribute to the brave young girl’s plight in a time of great conflict.
As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
