A “tapiz” is an artisanal artwork that takes much time and labor to craft, where invisible threads are woven and form a mysterious piece for the uninitiated.  But behind this seemingly mysterious process is an idea, an overall vision and artistic sense. The same goes for wine.
Tapiz is the love of our people working with [...]

More than a story, I will try to put into words a feeling of life. To develop or create a wine profile is like having a child, and for those of us who are parents, we know what we’re talking about. It carries your own blood, starting with the name, which can not be decided [...]

Tracia – Finca del Enlace

My passion was to create wine evoking the most simple pleasures. I discovered history of a culture which shared these same sensations regarding the grape-vine.  The Tracians, guided by their god, Dionisius, connected the wine with each of their celebrations, battles,  songs and rituals.

Mendel – Mendel Wines

Mendel Wines has a problem: we have a quality fetish. It’s not the confession you expect from your winemakers, but acceptance is the first step towards recovery.
