About the Producer

If you like the Cueva wines then you're gonna love these. Let's just say Mariano took Juan under his wing and showed him everything he knows. Juan's family owns vineyards in and around Requena but it's only Juan who found his vocation in winemaking after meeting Mariano and tasting the magic. You're probably asking yourselves why he has so much Chardonnay and the answer is quite simple. Utiel-Requena is an authorized Cava region and for this reason his family planted so much Chardonnay. That said, he's also working with/recovering some of the region's indigenous grape varieties like Tardana, Tortusi, Royal, and of course, Bobal. He practices organic viticulture and his winemaking is as radical as Mariano's. Pure fermented grape juice, nothing else.
