Some years ago, little could be seen of the Quinta de Aves vineyards. The vines were hidden under tumbling weeds. Abandoned by man, it was perfect for the rare night birds that inhabited the hills. The prolific vines produced more grapes than the birds could eat. So, as was their habit, they stowed them away for winter.


And thus, one afternoon, a young winemaker was stopped in his tracks by an intoxicating scent of plum and figs. Savouring the alluring hint of vanilla, he followed his nose to an ancient old tree. The birds had stowed their crop in a hole in the trunk. But, facing the sun as the hole did, the fruit had started to ferment. Alberto couldn't resist. The liquid was out of this world. He just needed to bottle the stuff.


Quinta de Aves' history dates back to the 80's when its founder, Don Mauel Casada Casla, acquired the properly. After spending 25 years taking care of the soils and improving the quality of the vineyards, in 2006 the family made the decision to start elaborating and bottling their own wines under the Quinta de Aves name.


Noctua Ensamblaje is an intense and clean red wine with a bright red cherry appearance and a matt hint. Its outstanding aromas show ripe fruits such as plums and figs along with a vanilla background, all of which pervade the palate. This is a very fine and delicate wine.
