Winemaker Notes

Honoro Vera Garnacha is produced by Bodegas Ateca, located in the region of Calatayud. Bodegas Ateca cultivates old-vine Garnacha on slate-based vineyards at about 3,000 feet above sea level, some of the highest vineyards in the region. Clay loam deep below the rocky slate allows the vines to obtain moisture and the vineyards to be dry-farmed, lending to low-yields, intensity and structure. Large rocky slate top-soil retains the heat of the day which it later gives off at night when the temperatures drop drastically, especially during the ripening period.

Honoro Vera Garnacha is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged for 2 months in French oak barrels. It shows bright aromas and flavors of redcurrant, cherry, and raspberry with a touch of toasted oak, spice and silky tannins.

Dry-farmed, no pesticides or herbicides, hand-harvested, Vegan

Critical Acclaim

JS 90
James Suckling
A generous and meaty red with lively but discreet acidity lifting, which keeps the full body light on its feet on the long, clean finish.

Bodegas Ateca, Spain
Bodegas Ateca Bodegas Ateca Winery Image
Bodegas Ateca is a joint project between the Gil winery family and the well-known importer, Jorge Ordonez. The bodegas is located in the Calatayud region of northeastern Spain. The majority of the vineyards are grown in highly permeable and healthy soils with a high amount of limestone. The soils are rocky, loose and low in nutrients. The climate in this region varies vastly from day to night, allowing for more balance between acidity and alcohol.

The main varietal here is Garnacha grown from old-vines up to 80-100 years old.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
