Andeluna Altitud Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes used for producing this wine were extracted from the vineyards  located in the Uco Valley, Mendoza, at 1.300 mt (4,300 ft.) above sea level.
This area is characterized by its wide thermal amplitude, which allows for grapes of great intensity in color, an important aromatic expression and great natural acidity.

“It is a sample that shows that Cabernet Sauvignon can be a kind varietal and with its personality. A great wine to accompany meals and that will please men and women”
Manuel González, winemaker at Andeluna.

Andeluna Pasionado Cuatro Cepas

The four grapes (”cuatro cepas”) used to make this red wine come from vineyards located at an altitude higher than 1,300 meters above sea level.
The designated places, discovered by their unique identity, are divided in small plots that give the wine personality, sophistication and elegance. These plots are of low yields and each of the varieties participating in the coupage have been vinified separately.
This wine represents a poetic way of seeing life, honoring the soil, the height, the Andes and the Moon.

Bertrand Stehelin Gigondas AOC

The Stehelin family comes from a line of five generations of winegrowers. Nicole and Frédéric have been running the Domaine de Paillère and Pied-Gû since 1978.
Bertrand, their eldest son, has been working with them since 2001 and has developed, in parallel, his own brand “Bertrand Stehelin”.
Both estates are located on the Gigondas lands in the Rhone Valley.
Due to its geographical location, Gigondas benefits from a Mediterranean climate that makes it unique and an exceptional asset. The vines of Bertrand Stehelin are cultivated on an excellent soil mainly exposed north-west. Drastic climatic and geological conditions, rugged geography favor the development of very red and tannic wines; typical wines of Cru Gigondas.

Blason d’Issan Margaux (Château d’Issan GCC 2nd wine)

Blason d’Issan, Château d’Issan’s second wine, was introduced from 1995 onwards to enable selection amongst the vines growing in the Margaux appellation area. Made from the younger plots (around 18 years old), it respects the identity of its terroir, while offering a tasty round fruitiness, which can be enjoyed earlier.

The harvest in 2016 was very similar to that of 2010, but volumes were higher, clearly a vintage with outstanding balance.

Bodegas Vegalfaro Caprasia Bobal Crianza Ánfora

Andrés Valiente and his son Rodolfo formed Viñedos & Bodegas Vegalfaro in 1999. The name Vegalfaro comes from a combination of the word “vega,” meaning a lowland meadow or stretch of alluvial soil, with the historic name of their winery property, Casa Alfaro.

Bodegas Vegalfaro cultivates 60 hectares (148 acres) of low-yielding vines that fully conform to the strict requirements of Ecological Farming established by the European Union. The winery has never utilized artificial products in its vineyards, so soils are alive with a prolific variety of microfauna. These microscopic organisms are very important for the decomposition of organic material, as well as for the absorption of nutrients through a symbiotic relationship with the vine roots.

Caprasia in Iberian meant “the land of the goats.” The Caprasia brand pays tribute to a time when wild goats ran free and the native Iberian people practiced viticulture between the Sierra Cabrillas mountains and the Cabriel river.

Certified organic.

Bodegas Vegalfaro Vino de Pago de Los Balagueses Syrah

Andrés Valiente and his son Rodolfo formed Viñedos & Bodegas Vegalfaro in 1999. The name Vegalfaro comes from a combination of the word “vega,” meaning a lowland meadow or stretch of alluvial soil, with the historic name of their winery property, Casa Alfaro.

Bodegas Vegalfaro cultivates 60 hectares (148 acres) of low-yielding vines that fully conform to the strict requirements of Ecological Farming established by the European Union. The winery has never utilized artificial products in its vineyards, so soils are alive with a prolific variety of microfauna. These microscopic organisms are very important for the decomposition of organic material, as well as for the absorption of nutrients through a symbiotic relationship with the vine roots.

The Pago de Los Balagueses estate is a privileged vineyard site in a solitary location entirely surrounded by forests within the mountainous Parque Natural de las Hoces del Cabriel, an ideal microclimate and soil for vine growing.

Pago de Los Balagueses is Vegalfaro’s top-echelon wine brand, entirely sourced from one of only seventeen wine estates in Spain awarded the DOP Vino de Pago designation to date. Spain’s “vino de pago” system is an appellation structure that was legally created in 2003 by the Spanish government, in coordination with Spain’s winemaking community, to indicate a higher qualification of excellence than DO or even the top-level DOCa. It is comparable to the French-wide Grand Cru system.

Certified organic.

Cantina di Negrar Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG

The Cantina di Negrar brand is the soul of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar and pays homage to the philosophy of cooperative production while also recalling the territory’s historical vestiges: the effigy of St. Mark’s Lion standing tall on a column in the centre of Negrar is testimony of the Venetian Republic’s domination in the sixteenth century. The Cantina di Negrar wines are rooted in the wine-making tradition of Valpolicella and the Veronese wine-growing areas, with a modern reinterpretation to guarantee the best price/quality ratio.
Made from grapes grown in the Valpolicella Classico zone (Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella), which undergo the long drying process called appassimento, Amarone is the maximum expression of the union between men and this land. A wine of refined softness, intense, enveloping, a meditation wine of great longevity.

Château Cantelaudette Cuvée Prestige Rouge Graves de Vayres AOC

“I inherited Château Cantelaudette in 1984, I was thirty years old and married in the same year. The property was not really a wedding gift: the house and vines had been abandoned and there was no winery. However, my wife, when she saw the old château, thought that it should be our home. Starting from scratch, we refurbished it to our taste, replanted the vines according to expert recommendations, and built an operational winery to produce a wine under the Cantelaudette label. Without my wife, Laurence, I never would have had the courage to undertake this adventure. I make wines for her and which reflect her… refined, elegant, balanced, rounded, and with a certain complexity.” – Jean-Michel Chatelier, owner and manager of Château Cantelaudette.
