La Mistela, contrary to popular belief, is not a proper wine. Its production is different from the production of a wine, and therefore does not fall into this category, but into the category of liqueur wine.
La Baronia de Turís’ typical Mistela has been produced for thousands of years and it is obtained adding wine alcohol to grape must, in this case, Muscat of Alexandria. Such an amount of alcohol prevents the yeasts from fermenting and at the same time, it keeps the product in good condition for much longer.
In Valencia we usually say that there is no lunch without Mistela. This is because the traditional pairing of a liqueur wine is a dessert. And indeed, the Mistela is normally served very cold and accompanied by a sweet, but rules are often broken. Gastronomy is innovation, it is contrast. Our CEO Ana Calvet, in a recent interview with 5 Barricas, proposes to pair Mistela with patés and cheeses.
As Turís is a land of tradition, the mistela de moscatel is one of our distinguishing marks, and we offer 4 different types of varieties. All palates will find their ideal mistela.
