AROA, Navarra – Organic
There have been vineyards in this region since Roman times. Many centuries passed, and the vines were kept until the 1970s and
80s, when many were removed in order to give way to cereal fields. AROA arrived in 1998 and began to reactivate the
vineyards. “where the grape is pressed, that this marvellous process of the transformation of the grape into “divine liquid:
wine” took place.
AROA defend the concept of “terroir”, the individuality of the wines from a specific area, with their own cultural identity, by
using a small-scale artsian approach, making full use of current technology, both in the vineyard and the wine cellar.
AROA, a Basque word, in the context of agriculture, means: “The optimum, ideal moment to work the land”
These are located in Gorozin and Zurukoain, Valle de Deierri, in the heart of Tierra Estella, one of the five sub-zones which
make up the Denomination of Navarre.
There are three vineyards: Burunziain, Ernobeleta and Aritzarotz, which make up a surface area of 20 hectares. In each of the
same we find red grape varietiesThere are seven vineyards whose name are: Burunziain, Ernobeleta, Aritzarotz, Magdalena, El
cerrao, San Lorenzo and Apalaz comprising an area of 20 hectares, in them we find grape varieties: Tempranillo, Cabernet
Sauvignon, Merlot and Garnatxa, and white varieties such as Garnatxa white and Muscat. The soil is clay – limestone, fresh,
being on the edge of the Mediterranean climate with Atlantic influence climate, sheltered by the mountains of Urbasa and
Andía. The winters are cold and hard, and hot dry summers, occurring in the summer high temperature difference between day
and night, promoting the formation of high content of polyphenols. Furthermore, the maturation period is very long favouring a
good phenolic ripeness.
The Garnacha Blanco is pale lemon in colour and has remarkable freshness and an almost salty minerality. The red is made
without added sulphur and exhibits bright cranberry fruit with a floral lift. A delightful pair.

BODEGAS PEDRO OLIVARES, Murcia – Organic
This project in Murcia, is coordinated by Pedro Olivares and aims to develop organic natural wines from Bobal, Monastrell
and Garnacha from vines between 50-80 years of age in different zones within the region of Murcia. Whilst all their vineyards
are at high altitude they have also planted the highest vineyard in Europe at 1700 metres above sea level with the aim of
producing white and sparkling wines, late harvest wines & even ice wines! Pedro writes: “This can only be achieved through
dedication and effort. On each foot of land we lay our heart and soul, whilst at the same time without renouncing the
standards that characterize our work, an exceptionally personal viewpoint which is founded on the principles of bio dynamic
agriculture. Indeed, we have taken this one step further, and have coined the phrase ‘multi-dynamic agriculture´.”

BODEGAS FUENTENARRO, PEREZ GARCIA, Ribera del Duero
Bodegas Fuentenarro is a family winery owned by the family Pérez Garcia. The winery is located in the municipality of La
Horra, Burgos, with a long winemaking tradition in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The wines come exclusively from family
owned vineyards. The youngest of these vineyards is 20 years old and the oldest 70 years, with different wines produced at
each vineyard. The bodega is organic but not certified with sheep manure used for composting, the vines growing on a
mixture of clay and chalk at an altitude of 800m-900m
After a manual harvest usually in the first week of October the Tinta Fina grapes are taken to the ageing cellar which is built
eight metres underground (resulting in a constant temperature throughout the year).
After a 20-day maceration the wine is fermented at 25 degrees before being aged four months ageing in medium toast oak
barrels and then a further four months in bottle. The wine is unfiltered with only a gentle cold stabilization.
Deep colour, classic nose of black fruits, rose petals, sweet spice, undergrowth. The palate is luscious, full of ripe fruits such
as cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant with touches of spice, ripe tannin and fresh acidity. Subtle oaked character but very
drinkable. Drink with lechazo (slow roast suckling lamb) or, failing that, lamb chops.

ALFREDO MAESTRO TEJERO, Ribera del Duero – Biodynamic
Alfredo Maestro Tejero’s vineyards are located within the Ribera del Duero D.O., but Alfredo prefers not to participate in the
D.O., so the wines are Vino de la Tierra de Castillo y León. His are completely natural wines, with no sulphur added in the
vineyard or the winery. All vineyard treatments are natural, and many of them follow biodynamic practices. The Castrillo de
Duero is 100% Tempranillo. Fermented in small stainless-steel vats, and aged for 16 months in old French oak barrels. A rich
Tempranillo that maintains its vibrancy, with great structure. The Almate is darkly coloured, opaque and mouth filling with
lavender and toffee notes that stay from nose to finish while only tiny bit of reduction, maybe because of the low sulphur,
shows on the nose, but quickly disappears to allow a sweet nose of roses, mineral and red berry fruits which lead to a dense
palate of plum, cherry and berry compote.
The isolated Gredos mountain range lays 70 kilometres west of Madrid and is home to a mosaic of tiny old-vine vineyards
planted mainly to Grenache. El Marciano comes from one such 70-year-old granitic site lying at a staggering 1,150 metres
elevation. The grapes are mainly destemmed, 20% whole bunches were retained and fermented with wild yeasts in stainless
steel vat of 2000 litres with daily stirrings. No filtration, no fining, no added sulphur.
This gorgeous wine typifies Alfredo’s delicate touch and respect for his land. It’s juicy and flavoursome, laden with spicy
blackberry aromas before a raspberry liquorice and fresh earth scented palate. The texture is rock-sculpted (the granite
bedrock of the site lies just a few inched below the surface) and the acidity thrillingly bright, drawing all corners together
The label is a representation or the remote and barren, granite-ridden landscape that make up this wine’s terroir. It depicts
Alfredo directing his two green vineyard workers who clearly aren’t up to scratch, perhaps not surprising given the harshness
of the environment. El Marciano is the Martian.
Lovamor (lovethelabel) is 100% Albillo, a white grape variety found both in the Ribera del Duero region as well as the
environs of Madrid. Maestro’s vines are 100-120 years old, planted on clay and limestone soil. The vineyard is 800-1100
metres in elevation located in the Ribera del Duero DO, although this is labelled “Vinos Blancos de Castilla y Leon”. The
grapes see six days of skin contact, and are fermented without the use of oak. Native yeasts and no added sulphur. Only a few
bottles of wine produced apparently. The colour of farmhouse butter, aromas of russet apples, medlars and a chalky finish.
Quoth the raven “Love amor”. Difficult to place, but incredibly moreish.

COMANDO G, Vinos de Madrid & Avila – Biodynamic
Bodega Comando G is made up of Fernando García, Daniel Gómez Jiménez-Landi and Marc Isart. They met in 2005 while at
university where they forged their friendship based on a mutual passion: making first-rate Garnacha wines, which capture
and express the terroir of the unique plots where the grapes are grown. Three years later, in 2008, they launched the bonho G
(G for Garnacha) business venture. Although there are some who affectionately call them the ‘enochalados’ (‘crazy
oenologists’), in reality, this ‘online cooperative bodega’ (as described by El Mundo Vino) is carrying out the very serious
task of searching for old-vine vineyards planted with the Garnacha grape variety in the Sierra de Gredos, located between the
provinces of Madrid and Ávila. And the truth is that their work represents an authentic breath of fresh air, both in the
winemaking process — extracting the personality from each individual plot. There are three hectares of old Garnacha vines
spread out among the villages of Cadalso de los Vidrios and Rozas de Puerto Real, near the Sierra de Gredos mountains, on
granite soil and at an altitude of between 900 and 1,000 metres.
La Bruja is made from the grapes grown in two vineyards located in Cadalso de los Vidrios (Madrid) which
together add up
to 2.5 hectares of granite soils, planted with 50 to 80-year old vines. The grapes from both vineyards are fermented and aged
separately in wooden vats, using native yeasts and gentle maceration processes. Ageing takes place in French oak, first in 25-
Hl vats and then in 500-litre barrels, over a total of five months, which produces 5,000 bottles. This wine, according to its
creators, is “jovial and young, it’s the pure essence of fresh fruit, and a great introduction to the world of our Garnacha
wines”. Its enchanting labels — which show the ‘bruja’ (the witch) carrying out various winemaking tasks — change with
Garnacha in this form, pale, fresh and mineral, is Spain’s great red grape and bears a resemblance to Pinot Noir. Fernando
Garcia is quoted as saying: “The three of us have a certain weakness for Burgundy Pinot Noir and we are convinced that our
Garnachas can produce equally elegant wines as long as you look after the grapes and harvest early”.

Traslanzas was created in 1998 with the
within the boundaries of the Cigales Designation of Origen. The Cigales wine growing area in Castilla has a time-honoured
tradition of wine-making and is historically associated with the production of rosé wine. (I didn’t know that)
However, the enormous potential of such an excellent wine-producing area has resulted in many vineyards increasingly
placing more emphasis on growing black grape varieties suited to making red wines. The excellent conditions contribute to
red wines that show the required characteristics for today’s markets: structure, length, elegance and personality.
Traslanzas is a society that was formed by a number of members, including the winemakers Ana Martín and Maria Pinacho.
Their knowledge and expertise, together with quality grapes from the long-established vineyards of Maria’s family, combine
to produce the exceptional Traslanzas red wine.
Traslanzas is the name of a vineyard estate situated in the municipal district of Mucientes (Valladolid) which falls within the
Cigales DO. The vineyard is dedicated to the cultivation of Tempranillo grapes, known as Tinto del País grapes in the
Cigales region. The vines were first planted in 1945 by a local man, Aurelio Pinacho, meaning that they are now over half a
Several unique factors contribute to the quality of production and combine to afford the wine a range of exceptional sensory
characteristics. These factors include the maturity of the vines set amongst an exceptional Castilla estate; the traditional
style of cultivation; a production of less than one kilogram of grapes per bunch ensuring quality rather than quantity; and a
wine-making process that respects the characteristics of the grape. The vineyard nestles in a hollow between two adjoining
hills and spreads across a gentle south-easterly facing slope, which is just less than 800 metres above sea level. It sits on low
mountain subsoil dating back to the Pliocene era, which has evolved into dark brown agricultural soil with limestone
content. The ground is scattered with boulders, which have the joint effect of reflecting the sun towards the lower parts of the
vines and also help to retain accumulated heat on less sunny days.
takes place in new oak barrels known as “Allier” and “Pennsylvania” barrels.
These are situated in an amazing old underground bodega where the wine will remain with the lees for at least 12 months.
The wine does not undergo any kind of fining or stabilizing treatments before it is bottled in December.
Traslanzas has a vibrant cherry-red colour and complex and elegant aromas. The primary aromas display hints of violet,
lavender and fruits of the forest complemented by the secondary aromas that come from the Tempranillo variety, including
those of black fruit and liquorice. Toasted wood aroma, cedar and hints of spices such as cloves, vanilla and cinnamon also
feature. In the mouth, it is a wine of noticeable body (but not overbearing) and sweet tannins from the grape skins contribute
to the overall sensation of the palate. The wine has a long, aromatic finish.
