Well the Freixenet family agreed and told me to get on with it! So the next thing I know - I have a new project!
We've spent over a year talking to wine drinkers all over the world about our idea, who by sharing their views on what they like in wine, helped us created Mia. By the way, we called it Mia because once all the growers, designers, bottlers and distributors heard about the idea they wanted to be part of it and started calling it 'mine' so we called the wine just that - 'Mia' - the Spanish word for mine.
So now our wines are available in many parts of the world. Enjoy them and hopefully you'll start calling them 'Mia' as well.
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.
