Dominio de Calogía, true to its philosophy of site-based winemaking, launches Doble M, from the La Loma estate. The vineyard is located at an altitude of 830 metres above sea level, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region of Burgos. The vines, 25 years old, are planted on clay soils, with a sandy and pebbly part. This unique stratigraphy brings elegance and finesse to a red wine in which subtlety and expressiveness predominate.

Dominio de Calogía is a project led by José Manuel Pérez Ovejas. Double M has a special meaning: they are the initials of Manuela and Mauro, the children of José Manuel Pérez and Silvia Ortega. It represents a look into the future of Dominio de Calogía, a way of giving continuity to its tradition and dedication.

Doble M 2020 was bottled in March 2022, after 12 months in French Allier barrels. The production, which is very limited, is only 14,856 bottles of 75 cl. It will be sold exclusively through quotas, like other wines of the winery.

“It is a very different vineyard from those around it. We decided to vinify its grapes separately to try to visualise its depth and depth”, says José Manuel Pérez Ovejas, winemaker and director of the winery. “It ripens a few days later precisely because of its northern orientation and less fertile soil. Also for this reason, the grapes from La Loma are the last to enter the winery. We always want to make the best wine, but to do so we have to be patient and apply common sense in order to achieve the ideal balance. It gives very little production, but what might seem a defect contributes to the search for excellence that identifies each of the wines of this project”.

The 2020 vintage is characterised by its freshness, which gives Doble M a very Atlantic profile and allows it to exhibit ideal balance and exquisite harmony. The style that identifies all Dominio de Calogía wines takes advantage in this case of the very personality that this site brings to the wine, giving it a predictable longevity. Its balanced acidity and minerality highlight the singularity and differentiation that is sought after when making the wine, thanks to a very non-interventionist winemaking process. The respectful and rational viticulture practised at La Loma has allowed for an optimal interpretation of the terroir of origin, with the intention of reflecting its imprint in the wine.

Dominio de Calogía Doble M coincides with the fifth anniversary of the birth of the company. It reflects the winery’s self-demanding approach to the production of single-vineyard wines. Like Calogía and Cuvée S, it is in line with the brand’s ambitious objectives.

The Madrid Association of Sommeliers, has organized this Monday at the Chamber of Commerce of Madrid, a unique meeting with three wine magicians of the Ribera del Duero with a tasting of 9 exceptional wines.

JOSÉ MANUEL PÉREZ. The endings are always the beginning of something new; even something better than everything that came before. And if not, just tell it to Jose
Manuel Perez Ovejas. He has returned stronger than ever.

After finishing his first chapter in Viña Pedrosa -the family winery where he spent 30 years- the new lines of his story are written in a new stage that he is facing alone (with the encouragement of his wife Silvia Ortega) and that stars Dominio de Calogia, his new winery that is impregnated with all his personality. His letter of introduction: Dominlo de Calogia, a monovarieal of tinto fino (tempranillo), and what a letter of introduction!

Now in this personal project, -ideated in the spring of 2020- the priorities and philosophy of José Manuel Pérez change, being possible to focus on aspects that were not possible before (with large volumes of wine).
previously (with large production volumes), were unthinkable, such as yields and kilos per vine (where Manuel is now looking for higher quality in
quantity) in order to be able to work without pressure or inertia.

His dream -which has been fulfilled with great success- is developed in 20 hectares of proplos vineyards, with old vines (between 30 and 70 years old) located at an altitude of 800 meters in the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero (between the municipalities of Roa and Pedrosa del Duero).

Right in the center of this property -like a French domaine- are the new, avant-garde wineries and facilities, in which some four million euros have been invested.

As for the human side of the business, Dominio de Calogia is supported by a young and small team.
team, led on the technical side by Jorge Monge.

The sum of all this, with the fuel of enthusiasm, has quickly made Dominio de Calogia one of the leading red wines in the world.
one of the leading reds of which more than half of the production (25,923 bottles) has been placed in foreign markets.

José Manuel Pérez Ovejas has turned Dominio de Calogía into a benchmark in Ribera del Duero in just five years.

We share an article published on March 6th in El Periódico. Its author, Ferrán Imedio, has given it a very human journalistic approach and reflects the philosophy of this project, which was born 5 years ago.
