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.

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 Larcis Ducasse Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé AOC

Traditionally Château Larcis Ducasse, a St Emilion Grand Cru Classé, was regarded as a property with exceptional terroir but a constant under-performer. This has changed, mainly thanks to the talents of a new winemaking team headed up by Nicolas Thienpont (of Château Pavie Macquin repute) and Stephane Derenoncourt(the mercurial ‘flying wine consultant’) who have managed to unlock the potential of this sleeping giant.

The estate is located on one of Bordeaux’s finest strips of terroir – the Cote Pavie in St Emilion. The vines are planted on an eclectic range of soils – alluvial sand deposits, clay, chalk and limestone. The vines are predominately Merlot (some 75%), Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Château Tour de Capet Saint-Émilion Grand Cru AOC

In the small village of Liginiac in Corrèze, the Moueix are recognized and respected for having lived by and passed on two core values, essential to success: Discretion and Hard Work. When Antoine Moueix (1796 – 1874), the first of the namesake, settled with his family in Lieu-dit Manzac on the Millevaches plateau, he had no idea that his descendants would establish one of the biggest wine dynasties in Bordeaux and California.

Today, Antoine Moueix Propriétés walks in the footprints of their founder: discretion and hard work, passion for great terroir, good agricultural sense and social responsibility, for transmission of expertise and the pursuit of excellence in all areas.

Vinified within Château Capet-Guillier, Tour de Capet enjoys its own unique terroir, lending the wine identity and character.
The sandy-silt soil produces wines of great finesse, which draw character from the well-balanced structure and round-bodied nature of Merlot.

Château Vieux Pourret Saint-Émilion Grand Cru AOC

Château Vieux Pourret is very well located on the Saint-Emilion plateau, on the locality called “Pourret”. Vieux Pourret’s vines are for the most part in the town of Saint-Emilion itself (with a clay/sand mix in the soil) but also in Saint-Hippolyte, where the soil consists of clayey limestone. Château Vieux Pourret has been created for over 50 years and now the property is owned by Emmanuel Coudroy and run by his wife Nathalie, being the estate manager, which, starting from the vintage 2012, didn’t continue to make this wine organic but they rather elaborated a fruity wine with a melted and elegant mouth, really worthy of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru.
