Jose Gil joined his family firm - Bodegas Olmaza – in Rioja Alavesa after completing his studies in 2012. Not long thereafter, he found himself a cellar and has now started to bottle his own wine from the five hectares of vines he personally owns, vines that he works biodynamically.
He has been described by Luis Gutierrez on robertparker.com as “…one of the leading young producers in Rioja and the whole of Spain”, and by Tim Atkin MW as “one of the region’s best young talents”.

"Two plots of 45 and 80 years old combine to produce this village blend of Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha and a little Viura and Calagraño, all from Labastida...this has chalky freshness and intensity, sappy bramble and black cherry fruit and layered tannins. 93/100." Tim Atkin MW
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.
