“Everything around us is a miracle and everything is loaded with spirituality. The miracle of wine begins first in the grape, which is the living expression of the Spanish land (minerality, earth, air, water, sun). And it continues with winemaking, which is the expression of the culture, knowledge, technique and the character of the Spanish people. All, in a glass of wine for our discovery and admiration. Ancient vineyards, splendorous grapes, cult wines. The best way to know Spain.”
