Spanish Red Wines

We are actively beginning to specialise in boutique Spanish red wines and are working with some fantastic artisan wineries, importing their handcrafted wines into the UK for our customers. All these wines are tiny production, some just a couple of thousand bottles per year, made by passionate families. They're generally from family farms handed down from generation to generation, and the wines are still made the same way using traditional methods, with some modern improvements.

These Spanish red wines are low sulphite and great tasting, a very healthy lifestyle choice. They're also great value for money.

  1. Tampesta Golan Prieto Picudo D.O Tierra de Leon

    This artisan Tampesta Golan is again Prieto Picudo, this time aged in oak for 26 months. It is delicious and natural. Although aged for 26 months in oak it isn't overpowering as some Reservas can be, it is far more balanced and elegant.

    The wine is made by expert Galician winemaker Luis Buitrón, vice-president of the Spanish Federation of Winemakers and president of the Association of Oenologists of Galicia. Highly recommended.

    This is a library picture of the Roble as there are no professional images available yet as this is a brand new wine. Presentation is very similar though.

  2. Herederos Rioja Selecion D'Autor

    Herederos 1808 Selecion D'Autor is the top wine from this excellent family winery. More gentle and sophiticated rather than powerful. Only 6 months in oak but then 20 months in bottle so not the heavier vanilla style of Rioja. More purity of fruit with elegance and structure.

  3. Tampesta Roble D.O Tierra de Leon

    This artisan Tampesta Prieto Picudo Roble is from the DO Tierra de Leon in North Western Spain. It is a beauty. Not big and powerful, more subtle, soft and smooth with great overall balance. We focus heavily on natural wines that are easy to drink, harmonising with the body and this is one of our best finds this year. The wine is made by expert Galician winemaker Luis Buitrón, vice-president of the Spanish Federation of Winemakers and president of the Association of Oenologists of Galicia. Highly recommended.

  4. Herederos Rioja Crianza

    There's good fruit flavour with a hint of vanilla. The wine is very smooth with great balance, as it is made naturally without any acid rectification or other trickery. Herederos farm biodynamically and use minimal oneological products during the winemaking, producing a pure wine that tastes as wine should!

  5. Herederos Rioja Reserva

    Herederos farm biodynamically and inform us that all their wines are low in sulphites (under 30 ppm free SO2 in all of them). Delicious fruit with noticeable vanilla from the oak. Not a big hitter, far more elegance rather than power. Great balance and very smooth, and not over dry on the finish as many Riojas can be.

  6. Herederos Valcavada Rioja

    A fantastic new wine from this superb boutique winery in Rioja.

    The wine itself is beautiful. Plenty of body, super smooth and integrated as all Herederos's wines are. Like their other wines it is low in sulphites and additives as they farm biodynamically and use absolute minimal additives or manipulation.

    Great value. We predict this will be a big seller.

  8. Cuvee Joana Bodega Vagal D.O.P Valtiendas

    Bodega Vagal is a tiny artisan winery practising biodynamic methods (pending certification) roughly midway between Madrid and Logrono at altitude. They only make two wines and this Cuvee Joana is excellent. In fact I'd go further and say definitely try a bottle as it is something special. Beautifully made with power, grace and purity.

  9. Malcaracter Valtonar D.O. Ribera del Duero

    Like all wines from Valtonar this Malcaracter is a natural wine, farmed organically. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented with their own yeast. The wine is bottled unfiltered

    Malcaractere is a collaboration between Valtonar and their marketing agent, and is some of Valtonar's best Tempranillo aged in oak for 12 months, released under it's own label for this joint venture. Excellent wine as always, very natural and very low in sulphites.
