Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 El Arte de Vivir is also 100% Tempranillo sourced from 60- to 80-year-old vines. It was aged for six months in French and American oak. It s more substantial and structured than the Vivir, vivir cuvee with layers of fleshy fruit, excellent concentration, and 1-2 years of aging potential. The finish is lengthy and sweet. Drink this pleasure-bent wine over the next six years."
