Jose Antonio Garcia and his wife Julia Peña García run this business together. Both are from Bierzo, where Jose's family have owned vineyards for generations. When young, Jose lived and worked in Barcelona. His job in restaurants gave him a good knowledge of fine wine and he returned to Bierzo in 2009 to take over his family vineyards. He is a protégé of Raul Perez, one of Spain's most celebrated wine makers and he is now one of Bierzo's most exciting talents.

Tasting Notes

Made by José Antonio García, one of the rising stars of Bierzo, this superb old-vine blend of Mencía with 4% of other co-planted red and white varieties has lovely stemmy complexity from 100% whole bunches, graceful tannins, sweet wild strawberry fruit and levels of complexity that wouldn't look out of place in a Premier Cru Burgundy. 96 points.Tim Atkin MW

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
