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. Spanish Natural Red Wine Trio

    Three super natural reds from three artisan wineries. All farm biodynamically or organically and all use minimal sulphites and other additives. These wines are not only delicious but also actively good for you. Valtonar is a father and two son winery in the prestigious Ribera del Duero, producing beautiful wines, unfined and unfiltered leaving all the goodness in. Juan Simon is an organic pioneer in Navarra making the wines himself in tiny quantities of just a few thousand bottles. And Herederos are a family winery in Rioja dating back to the 16th century who still today produce only artisan wines in small quantities with a total annual production of just 40,000 bottles combined.

    This case includes one bottle each of:

    Valtonar Barrica - Tempranillo, 12 months in oak

    Juan Simon Cartan - Garnacha & Tempranillo, 12 months in oak

    Herederos Valcavada - Tempranillo, 6 months in oak

  2. Herederos Rioja Selecion D'Autor

    Herederos 1808 Selecion D'Autor is the top winery 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.

  7. 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 oeeological products during the winemaking, producing a pure wine that tastes as wine should!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Cuvee Joana Bodega Vagal Biodynamic D.O.P Valtiendas

    Bodega Vagal is a tiny biodynamic artisan winery 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.

  12. Valtonar Crianza D.O. Ribera del Duero

    A natural wine, farmed organically, the grapes are hand harvested and fermented with their own yeast. The wine is bottled unfiltered. 14 months in Frenck oak.

    Very deep ruby, almost opaque. A nose of fruit, cream and vanilla. Lovely big black fruits on the palate. It's a big wine, full bodied and smooth with a savoury finish.

    New presentation on the new vintage. It looks great but unfortunately no images are available yet.

    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.

  17. Incredulo D.O. Toro

    The latest vintage (2011) of Incredulo has arrived. They have already sold out of their junior wine "Asterisco" so have done me a deal on this for me to pass on to our customers. The previous vintage was £19.99 and great value at that - we are offering the 2011 at £15 while stocks last!

    This is a big powerful wine, natural and pure with great overall balance. Big flavours with some vanilla coming thrrough on the finish - fantastic! Get some whle you can.

    This is a tiny winery of "friends" who make just two wines so we are very lucky to have got hold of some of this again this year!
