We will be showing the wines from the following producers:

Alfredo Arribas, Priorat  & Montsant
Alfredo Arribas is something of a Priorat superstar, having gained nationwide renown as an architect before turning his hand to winemaking. He has brought an entirely new philosophy to the wines of Priorat, creating wines of great precision and purity whilst maintaining all the power of the 80 + year old vines at his disposal. He has a very rigorous and meticulous approach in the vineyard to ensure he selects only the very best grapes. Pairing this with his creative and innovative winemaking techniques he has very clearly established himself as one of the finest producers in the region.

Bodegas Launa, La Rioja
With seven generations of winemakers in their family, it is no surprise that the three siblings who run the winery have been producing brilliant, award-winning wines every single year. The oldest, Iker, is the oenologist and after many years of studies and rigorous training internationally, he brought his skills back home. Their 57 hectares are located below the Sierra de Cantabria, where the nearby mountain ranges act as a barrier against the cold, damp winds from the Bay of Biscay, but still allowing some moisture through for optimum vine development. All the vines are picked by hand to ensure quality, and judging by the results, it has paid off.

Bodega Monfil, Cariñena
Cariñena is an up-and-coming area located just to the south of Zaragoza in Aragon. Though it shares its name with the Spanish synonym of Carignan, more than just this single variety is grown there. The Mateo’s vineyards are planted with Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Macabeo. The family used to sell their fruit on, but for the past ten years they have been making their own wine. Modern and fruit-driven, these wines represent exceptional value and are a great illustration of New Wave Spain.
