Bodegas Biurko Gorri

Biurko is a Basque word that means “place of two waters”, and is the name of an area in the town-land formed by two hillsides and a valley. The name suggests that at some time in the past two rivers flowed here.

The Llorens family committed itself to a long-term project where they would process and market the grapes from their own vineyards by combining the best in state-of-the-art technology and tradition to obtain quality wines and product identification.

The winery is located in Bargota, a small village that lies at the base of the Yoar Sierra (Sierra de Cantabria) at an altitude of 600 metres surrounded by family vineyards and olive groves, and was built on a hill overlooking the local countryside and offers excellent views of the surrounding area.

The village of Bargota is steeped in winemaking tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation.

The type of construction prevalent in the village clearly shows the importance of wine in the local economy and the way local people have lived. The stone-built houses hide underground wine cellars where each family made and stored their wines without the aid of the modern technology at our disposal today.

The philosophy at Biurko is based on combining the cultivation of its grape vines through traditional natural agricultural methods and modern technology. This enables the winery to produce select quality wines whilst maintaining the characteristics of the local grape varieties.

Stainton Wines are exclusive importers of the wines from this small family winery run by Ramon Llorens with the added advantage of being organically cultivated. Production is quite small but the wines are excellent; approachable and very drinkable.

All our wines are available to both trade and private customers, with either direct delivery or to collect from our Kendal store.
