Dave’s trip to Rioja

3rd September 2015

Dave has just returned from a rekkie of some incredibly on trend Bodegas courtesy of Gonzalez Byass in Spain. Ahh, I hear your say..Tio Pepe sherry. Well yes, Gonzalez Byass do have their leading brand which is based in Jerez down in Southern Spain. This family also own stunning vineyards in Rioja, Beronia; Vinos del Vero in Somontano and Finca Constancia about an hour outside Madrid. Whilst working with the inevitable indigenous grape Tempranillo very successfully, they are also a dynamic experimental company with grapes like Malbec, Chardonnay and Gerwurztraminer producing some extraordinary wines. Watch out for some new arrivals in our portfolio.
