About the winemaker: 

“I would liken this to the 90’s era of hip-hop because of the high vibrant notes. Hailing from the heart of Spain this is a remarkable wine that encapsulates the essence of the Bierzo region. Composed primarily of mencia grapes, with a subtle addition of garnacha tintorera, this wine is a fusion of tradition and innovation. Through a meticulous winemaking process involving wild yeast fermentation in stainless-steel vats and aging on the lees in vat, Brezo Tinto emerges as a fresh, ripe, and inherently floral red wine that bears the signature spiciness of the region. Its medium to full-bodied character is celebrated for its un-oaked purity, allowing the grapes' true nature to shine.”
