This wine is sourced from 60-80 year vines in La Horra and Quemada, villages in the Burgos District of Ribera del Duero. Produced by J.C. Conde, with Isaac Fernandez, managing the vineyards and making the wines. This wine spent 6 months in a combination of 70% French and 30% American oak after fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Literally translated as "the art of living" this wine is homage to those who have inspired us in the quest to bringing great Spanish wines to the US. This vintage is dedicated to Robert Nielsen, who believed in and supported my vision for Grapes of Spain. We practice the Art of Living in his memory.
