Monastrell from Spain is the perfect red for cold weather. Known as Mourvèdre in France, it is a part of the GSM, the “holy trinity” of the Rhône valley. (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre) This grape is also a superstar in the Provence region of France where Bandol and Bandol Rosé are, in my opinion, at their finest when the percentages favor Mourvèdre.
Monastrell can be at its best when from the sun-soaked regions of Valencia and Jumilla in the south, which are denominaciones de origen of Spain. These Spanish wines have depth and power. They are juicy with a backbone and supple tannins. It will make your winter drinking more interesting without a doubt. Cheers. #monastrell#jumilla#spanishwine#valencia#tarima#redwine#winterwine

Juan Gil tasting tonight! Here's a little history to fill you in on the four generations of the Gil Family name.
Since 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez had the winery built, only one clear idea has moved the following generations in charge of the same:
Doing a good job and being prideful of the Juan Gil name and commercial trademark.
Juan Gil Guerrero, a founder’s son, firstly, and then his grandson Juan Gil González, improved and consolidated the winery, applied the traditional knowledge of their job transmitted from parents to children. Nowadays, the fourth generation, linking the tradition with the technical revolution, is the one that enjoys the result of the work done by the predecessors.
The international recognition of the quality of their wines is
summarized in the name of Juan Gil.
Dois brancos completamente diferentes!
O primeiro é um Chardonnay chileno, extremamente frutado e fresco. O segundo, um viura espanhol, mineral, mais encorpado e complexo em aromas. 🍷 .

Classic Rioja: forget the hype from the industrial giants and see it from the eyes of the growers in the villages. This week begins a joint US tour between two of Spain’s great winemakers Conde de Hervías in Rioja Alta and A Coroa from Valdeorras. NYC, Baltimore, DC and Nova will meet the man pictured with the oldest vineyard in Rioja and the longest name in the game: Iñigo Manso Zúñiga Ugartechea, the Conde de Hervías. His ancestors established the oenology station in Haro and were integral in the replanting of Rioja post phylloxera. The vineyards which make up Conde de Hervías in the village of Torremontalbo in Rioja Alta are pre-phylloxera and planted in 1864, produced only in the best vintages. He is also the vigneron behind Torre de Hervías, Trinidad and Mencos, in addition to being on the tasting panel for the DO Jerez and an expert in Sherry. If you don’t know Iñigo, we invite you to learn more about him and his unique story. It’s an important piece of the overall story of Rioja that you won’t hear from journalists or trade groups.
